How do I fix lid on HP Pavilion M6-1009TX notebook laptop ?

In this case, i recommend you to bring your laptop to any service centres around and ask for part replecement.

Yes, the hinges are loose. It is a well known issues for laptop users. Frequent opening and closing behaviour can cause the wear and tear effect become even more apparent.

But if you really want to do it by yourself, then you should prepare a few things.

1) The hinges specifically for your model.
2) Set of screwdrivers for your laptop
3) Another laptop / tablet/ phone that can be used while you open up the laptop.

From there, you can search the youtube for hinge replacement. Take note of the number of parts and screws you took out. Opening it would be easy but putting it back in place is hell of a mess. Take a note and be organized while doing it. We don't want the keyboard to be loose after this wouldn't we?

Good luck.

Easy way to empty trash on a Mac when it tells your files are in use.

Ever try to empty your trash on your Mac and the system gives you an error telling you that a file in the trash can is in use and it will not allow you to get rid of it no matter what you try? Well, here's a little trick to help you get around this.

1. Open up terminal and type "sudo nano .bash_profile" and input your administrator password. This will allow you to view and edit this text file. We are going to use this to create an alias.

2. Click inside the terminal window to take control of an active cursor and use your arrow keys to move around. Type alias emptytrash='rm -rf ~/.Trash/*' into the window. Be sure to type the command exactly as shown otherwise you may end up deleting something you didn't intend to.

4. Press the "Control" key plus the "O" key to write the text out to the file and press enter to accept the default file name.

5. Press the "Control" key plus the "X" key to exit.

6. Close the terminal window.

Now any time you run into the issue of being unable to empty your trash due to stuck files, you can just open up terminal and type "emptytrash" and hit enter. Doing so will automatically run the 'rm -rf ~/.Trash/*' command and clean out your trash can for you, regardless of what is in there.

A video tutorial can be found here at the bottom of this tip.
I hope this helps!

I have the alias 2 and for a while when opening it sideways it made a small crack sound as it opened, and now it just won't open sideways at all. This was a replacement phone, so I don't know if I can get...

If you are still within your 1 year warranty, or you still have insurance/extended warranty coverage, you can contact Verizon and ask for another replacement device. It sounds like you got a defective one. Before you send it back, you should try putting a little WD-40 in the hinge, to see if adding some lubrication will help the hinge work properly.

The hinge on these phones, because of their design, is weak though, so you may just need to replace it.

If this helped you, help me with a few thumbs up!

Broke the hinge on my Samsung Alias 2. Need to repair it - have the parts! I had earlier broken my LCD and took the ****** apart, and put a new LCD in. Works fine, but not all of the original screws and...

The spring goes under the little plate that is held in by two tiny screws. Its visible when the phone is open vertically with the plastic cap removed from the hinge. Hope this helps. I took my hinge apart after I dropped it and the top half came off... now it's just holding by the ribbon so I'm going to order a new hinge. Verizon is completely useless. They don't want to even know about you if you're phone isn't under warranty and I have 11 months till an upgrade...

Kenmore 790.49073400 oven door won't close completely

Hello- You are on the right track. The hinge assemblies are 'sprung' or bent out of shape. Replacing them is pretty easy, so you can do it yourself. Four screws on each side. Be careful, these springs can snap closed and bite ya. Use the little pins that come with the new set to lock hinge so this doesn't happen. Let me know if this info helps- have more if needed- Thanks- Ed

Have 2001 Ford Windstar. Had back hatch open and backing down drive way. Corner of hatch hit edge of the house. The hatch was pushed up & in aprox. 2" so it now hangs at a slight angle and won't close. ...

makes me wonder if it is just the hinge that is bent and maybe the body where it attaches to the van. At the same time I doubt some thing easy will do away with the $2k expense (sorry). Maybe an entire back hatch with hinges from salvage yard (make sure to get same color).
