Can I make my hp laptop pavilion dv4 open up flat?

I would like to know if there is a way to make my laptop be able to open up flat. I ask because I'm a professional musician and would like to be able to open it up flat to put on a music stand to read lyrics and chords from it. Thank you.

Let me state up front: I don't know. Having said that, let me also say that my son is a violinist and I have helped him with similar problems so I understand your problem. I see two options: 1) buy a replacement set of hinges off of eBay for $10 (I just checked) and see how they work and figure out of they're modifiable, or 2) make a suspension device out of a coat hanger in about 10 minutes. Personally, I would take the latter path since it has worked for me before. I would make something similar to a plate hanger and just hang the computer on the stand with the screen in a good viewing position and the CPU/keyboard jutting out forward. Good luck!

SOURCE: How do I disable double-click on an HP Pavilion dv4 touchpad?

Hi there Dublin. I recently bought a HP laptop myself, and I believe I can help your situation, or at least I hope I can. Here's what you do: Access your Control Panel>Click Mouse>Click Device Settings>Click Settings> Click Tapping> Click Disable Tapping. That should do the trick. You are not disabling your touch-pad, just the double-clicking that is associated with it. Drove me nuts for about a day, 'til I figured it out..Hope it worked for your notebook.

SOURCE: hp pavilion dv4-1220us overheating then shutsdown

Sounds like you need to take it in for repairs, clean outs and/or replacements.

This product is known for it's heating issue and power consumption. Maybe the fan is starting to wear out and it's affecting the rest of the system. I would suggest checking the warranty on the system, if it is no longer valid, then I would look for a local tech in the newspaper.

You have to order the part from HP or find it on Ebay. If you get it from HP,, they usually provide a diagram on how to open the machine and replace it. This also happens with some purchases on Ebay but not very often.

How to replace lcd panel for hp dv4 1430

If you have to ask "how", I strongly recommend that you STOP, and instead take the HP to an authorized HP Repair Depot, and get the repair done correctly, quickly, safely, and efficiently, at no "risk" (one mistake, and you turn your laptop into a $500 "paper-weight" or "door-stop").
