Question about HP Compaq Presario V5201us Notebook
I am trying to find replacement plastic hinges for my Compaq Presario V5201US. Both the outside right and left plastic hinges are cracked just above the keyboard. This allows the back of these to come out of the lower case and it lets my lcd drop off. I need to replace these but can't find them. I am guessing that they call them something else. There are two outside hinges and two inside hinges from the lcd side of the notebook. In the center of each of these is a part of the hinge on the keyboard/cpu side of the notebook. So, any ideas how to find them?
The parts you're looking for are called "display panel hinges" You can buy these parts from compaq/hp directly, but personally, I would call, find out the part number and try to find a cheaper place to purchase them. A detailed video on removing the LCD panel completely can be found here. This will show you how to remove the broken hinges, and on the left side of the page, you can select videos that will show you how to do practically everything else. To get your replacement parts go to the compaq website (I couldn't find the part without the serial) or call 1-800-227-8164. There is also a live chat option once you go to the support section of the website. You may be able to rig the display so it works without buying a part, but now that you have the information, it's up to you. I hope this helps!

The hardware kit including these hinges and a few other parts is 407821-001 . You can order this directly from hp at partsurfer.hp.com
Unfortunately it is pretty expensive, $103.55
