Question about Acer Computers & Internet

2 Answers

I have an Acer Aspire 5040. The top has cracked and broken at both corners where the hinges are. So far, the screen is OK. Does anyone know if this is a design issue with Acer? Or if there is a replacement cover available?

I have an Acer 2410 with case and LCD support damage. I DEFINATELY see it as a design issue with Acer. The hinge is so STIFF it can only be turned with pliers. It actually broke the LCD support that bolts to the hinge. I'm hoping there is some way to loosen the hinges before I build an ugly but functional LCD support to mount to the hinges and save my screen.

Labtop broken hinges broke off computer still works fine just top monitor doesnt stay up snapped from hinges


here is a Ebay listing for laptop hinges for the 9400 series

You will have to install them or find a person who is handy with disassembling laptops.
1. You will have to remove the cover of the LCD screen and then you will see the hinge support assembly.

Here is a site that may assist you with the taking apart and assembly

Acer 9300 Laptop CRACKED BACK COVER NEAR HINGES


I would start watching e-bay for one. They're usually pretty reasonable, and without knowing exactly what part you're talking it's awfully hard to quote you a price.Good luck.-jmattes

Screen Replacement


ok guys...i have had the same prob and it is now solved...finally...and what an *** about way to build a computer!
The bezel that covers the on and off switch is a snap in piece (it also screws in from underneath)tand you wedge a guitar pick under it and lift and it will pop out. Then you should be able to see the screws that hold the hinges to the main frame, there are two of the screws for each hinge...BRAD justanswer.com)

The screen bezel has 5 screws on the base..3 are acessible from here, 2 are not...These 2 are in the corner and blocked by the hinge...the hinge therefore must be taken apart via 4 screws (2 then you will see 2 more) on the circuitry board...and if you can get this far...the rest is straight forward

this one has free shipping and all that fun stuff. 80 USD is better than 100 quid. You can do it yourself with a screwdriver, it takes about 20 minutes

ACER Aspire 9140 LCD hinge and/or LCD frame


Contact a local computer shop or a TV repair shop. Best bet is eBay, look for a completely trashed laptop just for a frame and hinge.


As far as mail-order/online, try this site:

Hope this helps

Acer Aspire 3613 cracks near hinges.


you can lift up the little round circles take out all screws,take top off, to lcd find the little gold nuts that the screws go into, try to put them back in plastic holes with super or gorilla glue,
or order screen parts on ebay, hinges usually get worse unless you find a way to secure those brackets attached to hinges

Cracked front cover at hinges


What does work is this-
Superglue the cracked lid as you WILL have one of these if you are reading this post- dont rush, I did about 10 glue applications over a few days to let it set correctly.
Next remove the offending hinges. You will see to spring/pressed steel curves in the body of the hinge, Next hack saw one (the outer is easier to get to) of these off, this frees the hinge up very well. Worked for me so give it a try

Cracks in case around hinges.


Replace bottom plastics. Find them by doing a Google search. Use keywords 'laptop plastics for make/model.
