Hings is loose on compaq presario cq60


If you remove the screen surround and then the base of the machine, you can then access the hinges and tighten the screws.

I have an acer aspire 5315 and the screen goes black I have tried to go into set up and I have taken out bateries etc but it's still not working . Any help is greatly appreciated thanks


Hello mariawint589,

The following instructions are from the Acer Aspire 5315 user's guide (page 35):

The computer's power management system automatically blanks the screen to save power. Press any key to turn the display back on, three hings might be the cause:

*The brightness level might be too low. Press <Fn>+<right-arrow key> (Increase) to adjust the brightness level.

*The display device might be set to an external monitor. Press the display toggle hotkey <Fn>+<F5> to toggle the display back to the computer

*If the sleep indicator is lit, the computer is in sleep mode. Press and release the power button to resume.

If this solution is helpful please click a thumbs-up rating.

Have a great day,

Go to your manufactures web site, choose "support".

It may take a little searching but you should be able to find what you need and order the part on the same site.

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

Standard RAM Failure after extended RAM replacement


Sometimes only certain types of RAM cards work with a computer. Check the old card to see what type it is. (Look for the letters "CMOS" or "EDO".) Make sure the new card is the same type as the old one. If not, put the old one back in and find the proper type of card.

Compaq Presario Laptop (M2000 series) hinge


Hello Wendy names Nick and just done hinge work on the Presario V5000z and readin up on your problem my suggestion would be lookin on ebay or various sites for the hinge then go about replacing it.

Steps involved in replacing the hinge start with removing power and battery

Next come the more difficult step, removing all the screws fron the bottom of the unit (this is done to gain access to the wireless cables which run from the wifi card to the lcd display)

once the base is removed then you carefully use a flat head screw driver an near the top row of keys (while pressing a few of them down) you will see a few notches which you can pry off the top cover giving you access to the lcd screen connector and bracket anchoring screws.

hopefully you disconnected your wireless antenna leads by now, and also disconnected the lcd cable from the board.

now you have the lcd display free from the base, now to change the hinge.

under the lil rubber circle pads are screws holding the brazel to the front of the lcd, this should be removed to get access to the lcd itself and thus the hinge brackets.

remove replace carefully i might add. then do everything in reverse to get the system reassembled and there ya have it
hinge has been replaced

P.S. careful steps should always be taken to prevent shock damage to any computer system when working on internals, also mind bending and pincing cables since they can most times be easilly damaged

Broken Toshiba Satellite R10 hinge


Don't try to have it welded, it won't ever be right again! Your best bet on a hinge is Ebay or a computer shop in the area that sells used laptops. Don't let them sell you one if they don't have one in stock,chances are they are going to get it off Ebay and mark it up 40% just for you. This link should provide the info you need for disassembling your machine.
