If you cant get second hand ones why not try making them yourself from apiice of robber or simular material.just cut a piece simular to the ones you allready have this may take two or three atempts .but it will be inexpensive and quick

Remove the two rubber feet from the bottom, remove the back cover plate, unscrew the single silver screw, take a flat head screwdriver (Thin) and push down on the silver face plate from the backside of the computer where you removed the two rubber feet. Shouldn't have to push too hard. This will release the case plastic. It is the silver painted plastic that unsnaps from the main body.
Sometimes you can get a replacement from the manufacturer, however you can improvise a replacement by going to a local office supply- they usually sell stick-on rubber "feet" for office equipment for around a dollar or two.
I think the little rubber button must be the one in the lower corner of the plastic face that goes around the screen? If so you have one of several problems.
1. That little rubber button is a screw cover and it conceals a small Phillips head screw that may be loose and shorting the wire that carries the signal to your screen. Gently pry out the little button and carefully tighten the screw.
2. If that doesn't solve your problem, here is the first of the further possibilities. A little panel behind that same screen border of plastic (it called the "bezel") named the "inverter" has a loose plug or is wearing out.
3. The LCD (screen) has a plug attached to the wire that runs by the screw behind the bumper which is loose inside where it plugs into the motherboard.
These problems need to be checked by someone very familiar with taking apart and repairing laptops. But at least now, you know what the problem might be and can talk to a repair guy about it and not get taken advantage of.
For starters, don't put it on any soft surfaces, like bed, your lap, or anything of that sort. A laptop has small "feet", and when placed on a hard surface they elevate it so that there's some air flow from the bottom of the laptop case. If you put it on a soft surface, the material gets pressed against the air inlets and blocks the air flow. If you work a lot with your laptop on your lap or bed or such, get yourself a laptop stand on which you would put it, or use a substitute, like a kitchen cutting board of suitable size.
If however the laptop is used on a hard surface and still gets very hot, it can mean a couple of things: - the "feet" under the laptop have lost their rubber ends, which give them the appropriate height - the air ducts inside the case are filled with dust residue, making it harder for the radiators to disperse heat. If your rubber "feet" un-glued themselves, it will be hard to replace them with exact equivalents. You can try sticking some rubber/silicone self-stick bumpers used in furniture to dampen the doors. If dust is suspected, compressed air can be used to blow it away through the air inlets and outlets (the latter usually are grilles on the side or rear of the machine).
try going into safe mode,remove the drivers reboot ,if you are able to see windows you have driver problem,if not your inverter is bad this a small board which sits under the lcd bazel.ONLY ATTEMPT THE FOLLOWING IF YOU FEEL COMFORTABLE OTHERWISE GET A PROFESSIONAL.If you are going to tackle this make sure the battery is removed the ac as well.now your lcd has rubber feet covering some screws remove the rubber feet you will see the screws remove the screws carefully remove the plastic bazel by prying it away with your fingers
the inverter sits below the lcd make sure both cables are snug.Usually sometimes its the conector on the right that comes loose.
They tend to get hot, its not a problem unless it starts to cause problems such as random crashes or shut downs, If its an old notebook then try using a can of compressed air to get rid of some dust. Either way what surface are you using it on? because id only use it on a flat hard surface like a table if not already and use something to raise the back of it by an inch or two more then what the rubber feet already do. Most people will assume laptops will run fine on your lap or bed etc how ever this is not the case, this will cause more heat and premature problems. I've made something for mine so i can use it on my lap when im in bed, its a piece of flat thin plywood around 22inchW/15inchL for my 17' lappy with halve inch rubber door stops glued in place where my laptops rubber feet would go, this reduced my overall heat from hot to touch to barely warm in fact i think the heat im feeling now is from where my hands have rested on the laptop :) laptops will run hot strait from the box if not well ventilated.
