Hinges would most likely have to be replaced, along with possibly the bottom case of the laptop. Hinges are usually sold in a pair, costing around $100, the bottom case if its needed, usually costs around $70.

i would advise you to take it to a technician who specializes in laptop repair (Your local Staples may be able to help you), and get a quote on repairing it. I would expect labour for that job to be around $100-$150 as well (if you're not doing the repair yourself).

Leupold 3x9x40 vari-xIIc on BAR30-06. Adjusted windage as far to the right as possible and I'm still 6-8 inches off center. 12 year old scope been dead on till the middle of this season.

from my experience owning a bar they tend to lose accuracy badly after a lot of rounds are put through them especially if they are shot rapid fire style allot ( the barrel gets very hot and i am also not impressed with how the barrel is attached to the receiver) i shot mine until it just would not shoot accurately at all. (i sold it). its possible that your scope or mounts are loose defective or there may be a screw that may be broken under the mounts that you cant see.

ray krans, Most owners don't have spare monitor to prove pc is not the problem. Good going!! Now on to your monitor!!! The symptom you have described is not new. If interested in a possible cheap DIY fix, go to YOUTUBE and watch some owners/technicians disassemble and perform the needed replacement of bad (swollen, leaky) electrolytic filter capacitors on the "switch-mode-power-supply" which provides dc operating voltages to other circuits. After viewing some videos you will be able to tell me if you can or can't do the repair. Tell me if you leave your pc and monitor on all year long or if you power it down every day. Cost of new filter capacitors less than $7 total. If you farm-out the repair, cost will increase 5 to 8 fold. Leave additional comment on your plan of action. 12fixlouie

Try another known good monitor. If it works then you know your old monitor has died. If the known good does not work then it could be a graphics card issue. Also check your monitor cable to make sure it is not cracked or any broken pins on either end. Also check to see if cable has possibly come loose on either end. Hope this helps you out.
