Compaq Presario V4000 (v4118AP) right hinge broken

Hi,
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.

Thanks,

Nirav

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 got the P/N for my hinges from the HP web site. I used "live chat" as my model was not listed, and got the answer within a few minutes. When I removed the screws from the bottom, I learned that no only those marked with a triangle but one on each side just inboard from the outside marked screws should be removed to avoid working below to remove the hinge screws. It did not appear that the screws (phillips on my unit) inside the battery compartment needed to be removed, but they seem to be marked and it doesn't hurt. I left the cable to the power switch panel connected and folded the panel onto the keyboard during my work.

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.

    I just replaced the hinges on my V4000. A thin putty knife made the screen bezel removal pretty easy, although the bottom left corner was the sticky point for removal. Replacement worked in the opposite direction - start with the top edge, down the sides and then the middle of the bottom. Finally work it around the hinges. When replacing the screws I found one brass insert had broken off. To examine behind the LCD, remove the hinges, lay it flat and 4 more screws at the bottom. CAUTION, do not touch the area behind the screen at the top.

Download SiSoft Sandra. It will tell you exactly what you have and also test every component. The best program by far and has been since Windows 98.

The battery is fully charged, and the ac adapter is plugged into the laptop, when i push the on button the laptop will not start


Remove the battery and power source. Remove the RAM and hdd. Power up with the power supply and it should do something. If it does, replace the RAM and hdd it should now restart. If nothing, check the GPU.

Screeen is upside down


If you have a Windows OS, press and hold the ALT and CTRL (control) keys and then press the Up arrow. (If that doesn't work, try holding the Alt and CTRL keys and pressing the left (or right) arrow key twice.) If that fails, right click on the desktop (Windows+D will minimize all programs), anywhere with no running programs or icons. Then select the Screen Resolution option. Look for the line Orientation; use the drop down menu to select the correct orientation. Click Apply and then confirm the setting change if a confirmation window pops up. (This works in Windows 7 and 8.) For older Windows versions on laptops, you may need to select Graphics Properties (or a similar line) and then repeat this. The Windows screen rotation option is dependent on your video card. With some models, you'll need to open the graphics card properties to undo the rotation. You should see a line for the graphics adapter when you right click on the Display.

For Macintosh OS, make sure that the System Preferences is closed. Then open it by pressing Option/alt + CMD . Select the line Display. Find the button labeled Rotation: Standard then choose the correct screen orientation.

I hope this helps.

Try the following: Using your FN key and the F7 Key together it might work again. You could have toggled the touchpad off. If that does not work you have issues with either the touchpad or the operating system. Best of Luck.

How do I start bluetooth on the qosmio g25-av13?


Try the ff:

1. Are you also using a wireless internet? If you are and you cannot also connect on wireless, make sure that the wireless is enabled on your laptop. On the left side of the laptop there is a on/off switch push the switch to on. (beside the usb port).

2. if it is already on, make sure that the bluetooth is enabled also, you can check it on control panel, system, hardware, device manager, bluetooth, right click on bluetooth driver, if you see enable bluetooth click on it, if you see"disable bluetooth" that means it is already enabled.

3. If the above is already configured, lastly, look for the bluetooth icon (bluetooth manager) on the lower part of the screen on the taskbar/tray if you see the bluetooth icon, right-click on it then click "Enable Bluetooth Radio". Now, if there is no bluetooth icon on the tray at the lower right of the screen, go to Start, Toshiba, Bluetooth, Bluetooth Settings, inside the Bluetooth SEttings, click on Bluetooth, Options, CLick on Enable Bluetooth Power, also, inside the Tray Icon (still inside Bluetooth Settings) select an icon so you can always see the status of your bluetooth on the Tray and you don;t need to do and check everything everytime you cannot connect via Bluetooth.

Hope this helps.
