Question about Compaq Presario V4000 Notebook
My Compaq Presario V4000 (v4118AP) laptop's right hinge (matel) is broken. I checked the maintenance guide, it list the part no 403922-001.
I want to know, can it be replaced at home? Or does it require some special tools (welding etc) to fix it?
HP/Compaq service center directly said to replace the entire LCD (costing 15000 INR).
Laptop works fine as data/power connector is in left hinge.
Any suggestion/help is welcome.
I had the same problem, they are very easy to fix, I did a search earliar and found some on the link below.
You do not need to dismantle to base, you have some star screws under the battary and one either side that loosens the small panel near the screen (where the power button is). The screen cover has screws under the plastic covers then just unclips, be gentle. after that it is self evident

I bought a pair of hinges from Ebay for the V4000. They were different than my V4000 so be aware of that.
You have to remove the 6 rubber circle bumper discs from the screen bezel to access the screws that fasten the bezel to the LCD. Be careful removing it. Wiggle it and pry gently one way or another until it snaps off.
The hinge covers fit into the LCD lid and their mount holes fit over pegs in the lid.
That's the details for the LCD end of the hinges.
I gave up trying to find the right hinges and covers so I and drilled and pinned the broken hinge.
