My 12 year old daughter told me she broke the averatec 3150 but as far as I can tell the hinge is not broken but a screw is missing and a small round cover for the screw . Im not sure if that was all that caused it to come apart .I need a picture of what to do to get it back together. The parts got missplaced and I dont know what to do to fix this. If you can give me a little help I would be very thankful. Thanks,Kevin

How many times and how loud is it. Make sure those no debris in the drive. One way is to spray air into the drive to loosen and remove any debris in it. A few squeeze of a can of compress air should do the job. If not will need to order a new drive and have tech support install it for you. Pricing I'm not sure of how much. Better yet, take it to any small business tech shop. Taking it to any Corporate Chain store would be major costly and might not even get it back right.
It is a snap together construction. a fine blade along the seam perhaps
But if you have doubts about that I certainly would have- How about Gaffer tape?
I have made many hinge type repairs [not a lappie admittedly] on stuff like the tool cover on a vacuum cleaner- it gets tacky after a while and will need replacing- but far better that trying to rip a clam shell apart.
both these sites quote 288$ - http://www.screentekinc.com/search-lcd-screen.shtml?lcds_product=averatec&Submit.x=26&Submit.y=15
You could also try getting a dead 3150 from ebay that has an LCD thats still good and replace them.
Asking around I learnt that replacing the screen is an hours work for a tech, but might be a little tricky for you and I couldn't find info on it.
LCD problems with Averatec seem to be common, so you might want to consider if you feel like getting another one that might break again...
Hope this helps
