Laptop Lid will not open

\015 I have a HP Pavillion DV2125 Laptop and the lid is stuck on the top left where the security cable lock is located. It is cracking from trying to open it. How can I get it unstuck ?\015

Answers :

There are two metal hinges that are on that laptop model and are at top of laptop near keyboard and screen joint. When one of these hinges breaks, and they do, it can become jammed. By continuing to try and open it you run the risk of damaging the LCD on the laptop. The top of the laptop has to be removed to access the hinges and replace them. This is not something a novice can do easily and is dangerous to the laptop. If its not under warranty and you feel comfortable with your skills you can try. However I would recommend a repair shop. The hinges for this model run about 10 dollars for the pair and the labor would be whatever the local rate is.
