Yes they can. You can buy new, or look on Ebay to see if any are available.

You have to remove the LCD Screen Bezel, LED Cover, (Switch Cover), and the Keyboard to access both hinges.

Sound like I'm typing a foreign language? Let me show you a guide to replacing those hinges, complete with photos, so that you may better understand,

This is a PDF file download for a Compaq Presario 305. After you click on the link, give it time to fully download before looking through it.
Here is the direct link,

http://www.elhvb.com/mobokive/edwin/laptops/Compaq/Compaq%20Presario/Presario%20305.pdf

If that doesn't work for you, here is the page it came from,

http://www.elhvb.com/mobokive/edwin/laptops/Compaq/Compaq%20Presario/index.html

It's in the right column. -> Presario 305.pdf
Start with Page 18, Preparing For Disassembly
Read and view Pages 24, 25, and 26. These pages show you the three connectors that must be disconnected, Display Panel cable, Inverter cable, and Audio cable.
(Pay special attention to how a ZIF connector comes apart. It's real easy to do, believe me. Page 23 shows you. You'll see that the ZIF connector is made up of two parts. The main connector body, and cable guide. The guide is shown in an up position in the illustration. It is down next to the main body of the connector, when you start. The guide does not come out all the way. You merely lift it up with your fingernails to the position shown, and the cable slides out. To replace, insert the cable in the correct orientation, then push the guide down against the main body)

Removing the keyboard is on Page 37. Removing the Switch Cover is on Page 40.
Removing the Display Panel is on Page 42.

Don't let this task seem that daunting. You CAN do it! I advise using a clean egg carton for the various screws. Label each egg holder for where the various screws come from. (Sounds pretty techy, huh? lol! That's what I use!)

You can buy hinges on Ebay. Make sure u get the hinge not the cover or support plate. then you have to take it apart and replace it. Not real easy but can be done by amature. Let me know if you need instructions. Be happy to help.

I need to know how to replace the display hinges on my presario


QUICK METHOD

1) Hinges supplied on ebay at about £15 a set. Non original parts seem fine.
A mini screwdriver set of decent quality with a magnetic feature helps & Duck (duct) tape.

2) Switch off and remove from mains source. Also flick battery holding switch and push out main
battery. Remove small Phillips screws under battery.

3) You can try the 'quick' method and not undo the whole of the base screws BUT be very careful
as you work not to damage the 2 sets of wires passing through the LH and RH hinges.

4) Pry off the long back top cover near hinges which has the start button on it and 'Presario' written
on. You do this by pushing from front just under F2 F3 SCROLL and PAUSE keys as well as from
the back. If you hold the keys down as you pry this helps. Use a thin blade of driver but be careful
not to split the thin plastic. TAKE YOUR TIME - BE FIRM BUT DON'T FORCE. Work round it
and it will eventually pop out upwards.

5) You have now access to the hinge cover(s) so remove these and also offending hinge(s) from main
body.
Don't let the lid sprain the hinges even further or break as existing good one! A temporary
hinge of Duck taping lid to base may help.

6) Take out the little grey rubber plugs from the screen side of the lid. They can be stuck back after.
Unscrew silver phillips screws (6 or 8 I think).

7) The plastic front of lid should now pry off and whole top opens up to reveal the side hinge
fastening. Unscrew little black screws and keep safe. Then carefully extract hinge.

8) Refitting basically just reverse of above. Hinges are naturally stiff to hold the screen so open
them up to the best angle to get all hinge screws in. A magnetic screwdriver does help!
Also, if both hinges have gone do one THEN the other to avoid pulling the lid cables too much.

I did mine, hinges fine and laptop still works!

Compaq Presario V4000 (v4118AP) right hinge broken


I had the same problem, they are very easy to fix, I did a search earliar and found some on the link below.

http://www.pchub.com/uph/laptop/291-29919-6327/Compaq-Presario-V4000-Series-Hinge.html

You do not need to dismantle to base, you have some star screws under the battary and one either side that loosens the small panel near the screen (where the power button is). The screen cover has screws under the plastic covers then just unclips, be gentle. after that it is self evident
