Question about Acer Aspire 3610 Notebook
Is there anything I can do myself to fix the crack on the lid by the hinges. I have called for repair but I cannot afford it. I know this is a common problem and I am sure someone has found a way to fix it. I need my laptop to last at least 2 more years
My left side cracked. I crazy glued it carefully, and it held for about a week only. I scraped off the old crazy glue and reglued again even more carefully while keeping upward pressure on the lid. I then cut out a piece of plastic from a 3M 3 1/2 inch floppy disk to fit over the crack and carzy glued that into place still keeping upward pressure on the lid the entire time. That repair has held for three months now.
I noticed that the other side was just starting to get a hairline crack, so I made the same repair to that side too as preventative measure.
I also noticed that the screws under the rubber inserts on the front side of the lid in front of the hinges were loose. I tightened those up, and that helped to spread some of the stress to the front part of the lid. I think that has a lot to do with the cracking problem.

Sorry bout the late reply but it happened to my acer laptop 4 times in the first year of purchasing it. On the fifth time I had an expert look at it and changed the screen from my model which was a aspire 5020 to a screen from a 5024 which was slightly a bit bigger and the problem hasn't happened again.. Hope this helps.

I have the same POS Acer 3610 and my lid is cracking. My wife's mom purchased one too and she has the same problem... I was thinking about using JB Weld or some other epoxy type stuff to reinforce the weak area. I tried super glue when it first appeared and it seemed to hold but then cracked again after time. I think it might be wise to use a *little* bit of wd40 or other light oil to loosen the strength of the hinge. I have not tried this yet but will be doing it once I do the JB Weld repair.
It's too bad that these Acer's have this issue as they seem like a fair machine otherwise.

I bought this part and replaced my back cover for LCD. be careful while replacing LCD inverter you might be needing a new one.
