    I have two Acer laptops. BOTH have cracked at the hinge on the left.

    Maybe it's time for a class action lawsuit for defective Acer laptop cases. Anyone interested in starting or joining one, please drop me an email at

    I have a acer 3610 laptop. There is cracks on both sides, but the one on right has cracked completely and now the screen is coming apart.

    Screen is coming apart at the left hinge. Cannot be snapped back into place. When closed or at any position greater or less than a 90 degree angle, the crack expands. Cannot be properly closed.

    My compaq has the same issue - the hinges have cracked at the back of the screen so it no longer stays upright..

    Mechanically and visually the laptop is still fab.

Hi, the best I could recommend is to try Ebay "want it now" section and see if some one has the part you want available.

Have a hp pavilion tx2000 laptop. outer screen is cracked but display is fine. can i replace just the cracked part and still have touch screen?

yes, of course.
you can visit a service center of HP Company and ask for "Shield or Cover Screen". (they ask you the exact model of your laptop)
and they will give you a cover screen which should be installed by yourself.
it's easy and cheap.
need more? only ask!

You definitely need to bring your laptop to the Toshiba shop near you. There they can facilitate the replacement of your laptop's body (casing). It is a critical task to do and I think a Toshiba authorized shop can help you with this. Thanks.

Hinges and top cracked on my Dell Inspiron 1525

unlikely that its still under warranty, but you can check the warranty status at
you may also find parts lists on their website. The plastic bezels on laptops aren't very hard to replace.

Don't Forget to rate the advice!!

The top case surround the screen has cracked on both sides of the latch and cracked on one corner. No rough treatment.

So what are you asking?
Sounds like you need to replace the top of the case. I have no idea why it cracked--you said there was no rough treatment (by you?)
Could someone else have messed with it?
It could possibly be a factory defect. If your machine is under warranty, that would qualify for replacement of the plastic. Otherwise, you're going to have to either glue it or buy a replacement bezel.

You will have to buy the hinges, and take apart the laptop. Hinges are usually metal, most likly just the plastic covering the hinges are cracked.

It sounds like the hinge itself is broken. I have a relative with exactly the same problem, her laptop screen became floppy and didnt stay in the upright position. The hinges for the screen are complicated in that they appear to come as a top/bottom part already joined together, and need to be replaced as such. The metal used for the hinges is really flimy and easily snaps. this sounds like what has happened to yours. The problem is that is appears to be not econimcally viable to repair, and your probably better off scrapping it or buying another with say;.. a cracked screen and doing a swap-over of parts to get one fully working one (thats what I did)
