Basically the same way I fixed my daughters laptop. I found 2 screws holding the button cover in place, then gently prying it popped out which gave me access to the screws. The screws on this laptop holding the hinges are torx screws, where as my daughters newer HP laptop was all phillips screws.

Compaq Presario CQ50 notebook screen goes fuzzy when opened to a certain angle (about 90 degrees). Wires being pinched at the hinges? If so how do I go about repairing this?


it sounds like you've damaged the cable that goes from your graphincs card to your screen or when you move it to 90degrees it's disconnecting. it's usually caused by someone opening the laptop and not putting the cable back in the right place, or loose screws in your hinges or a broke hinge. there are plently of videos showing how to open it up. follow one of them and make sure your wires are sitting in the right place, you don't have loose screws and the hinges aren't broken.

Compaq presario 730us won't power on


Sounds like the power converter that is probably on the motherboard, so you may be looking at a new motherboard. Hard to tell without seeing it in person, but you can take it some place locally and they can troubleshoot power issues for you. GL!

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

Compaq Presario Laptop (M2000 series) hinge


Very easy to replace if you can get new ones. Remove the batter and remove all screws under the battery as well as all the screws to the right and left of the battery location (3 on the V5000). Now back on the other side gently pry up on the portion of the "keyboard area" directly above the keyboard. A small keyboard will make this handy

Now you'll see screws holding the monitor the the notebook. Remove those screws and the monitor will be freed. Be careful with the wireless antenna wires and xvga cable. Now remove all the little rubber pads from the monitor and you'll find all the screws underneath. Remove those and you'll see how the hinges are attached to the monitor. There are three screws directly to the screen and a few to the frame on each side. Remove those and the hinges will come off.

Replacement hinges are available from HP's website for about $50 + shipping but call them up and give them *hit and see if they'll help you out.

there are plastic covers over the hinges, which may be part of the faceplate. being a compaq the hinge screws are most likely torx head screws. compaq used to make a special tool for removing the plastic covers on their laptops. the tool was a bar with a piece of fiberglas circuit board embedded in it. you insert the circuit board into the groove between the top and bottom covers and twist. this is, of course after removing all of the cover screws. some of the cover screws on the display may be hidden under rubber bumpers.
