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.

Acer laptop crack at the back of LCD near the hinges.


In my experience, I have been able to replace the LCD Bezel to fix the crack. You can order this from any online parts store if you are a Do-It-Yourself type or any computer support company could help. Good Luck

Hinges and top cracked on my Dell Inspiron 1525


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

Lcd hinges cracked


The parts you're looking for are called "display panel hinges" You can buy these parts from compaq/hp directly, but personally, I would call, find out the part number and try to find a cheaper place to purchase them. A detailed video on removing the LCD panel completely can be found here. This will show you how to remove the broken hinges, and on the left side of the page, you can select videos that will show you how to do practically everything else. To get your replacement parts go to the compaq website (I couldn't find the part without the serial) or call 1-800-227-8164. There is also a live chat option once you go to the support section of the website. You may be able to rig the display so it works without buying a part, but now that you have the information, it's up to you. I hope this helps!

Acer Aspire 3613 cracks near hinges.


you can lift up the little round circles take out all screws,take top off, to lcd find the little gold nuts that the screws go into, try to put them back in plastic holes with super or gorilla glue,
or order screen parts on ebay, hinges usually get worse unless you find a way to secure those brackets attached to hinges

Cracks near hinge Acer 3613 laptop


Apply a lubricant to the hinges themselves - not a ton of lubricant, as you don't want anything running down into the laptop proper.

What sound like has happened is that the display has somehow been in a bind, and therefore the hinges are in a bind. This makes it harder to moved the hinges, and thus when you open the lid it is making the cracks.

You may also want to unseat / unscrew the hinges and re-tighen the little screws that hold them in place.
