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.

We're trying to remove the hard drive from a Compaq Presario sr1500nx in order to donate it. We can't seem to get it out because two screws are on the side where the case doesn't come off

My laptop's hinge is broken but the connectivity is still on. Can I replace only the outer case? If so where and how much would it cost?


Hi,

It is not the outer case only, the HP/ Compaq laptops outer case is very thin fiber, from inside you've a metal hinge and bar holding it. You can take it to a local store to get it repaired. I would suggest if you have HP Accidental Damage Protection (ADP), you should call HP. They will replace or repair all accidental damages.

Regards,
Shrey

My screen on my dell laptop wont stay up its keep on falling


Your laptop hinges have lost their grip and need to be replaced. There isn't any way to repair them. Replacement hinges are available for many models. These days a good place to start looking for them is eBay. Search for "replacement hinges" for your specific model and you'll probably find several sellers. It's usually not too difficult to replace the hinges, although on some brands and models it's easier than on others. They are held to the laptop frame by screws.

Many sites have how-to information or videos about replacing the hinges. Look for new ones on eBay, check out the how-tos and you should be able to fix this yourself. Thanks for using Fixya!

Presario laptop hinge broken. How do I remove the bottom section of the hinge?


Well since we don't know what model presario you need help with, go to this site and search for tech manuals. once you find the model read what the manuals are for e.g. service manual.

Read carefully these might be multi-part manuals 0-5

read carefully the printing on the page is small and it is easy to overlook the "To download file please click here"

Need to disassemble gateway 8708 laptop to replace the lcd panel


If u've never opened one before, it is very complicated, be very gentle.
Different size screws for areas of laptop. After screws removed, the keyboard and shield have to be removed to get to the screen connectors and hinge screws.
If u don't mind taking a chance in destroying ur laptop. try it and learn. The laptop is assembled in layers.
Be careful and good luck.
