Definately an easy fix.

\015\012I suggest looking on eBay for a donor chassis.
\015\012Sometimes they can be had relatively cheap CLICK HERE (this one has both hinges broken however) - and sometimes just the parts you are looking for are available CLICK HERE (this is for the RHS one though).
\015\012
\015\012An entire donor PC is adviseable, because usually the repair is not just the hinge that broke - as the rest of the lid is plastic!
\015\012
\015\012Once the trim above the keyboard is pried off, you will see the monitor cable, and hinge screws.
\015\012
\015\012The trim around the monitor must be dis-assembled and pried into 2 parts.
\015\012Then the hinge & Support are either screwed into the side of the screen, or the back of the lid.
\015\012
\015\012Most look like this...

\015\012Replace reverse of removal.

\015\012HERE is a link that will describe it better and give you a visual reference.
\015\012You are interested in step #s 7, 8, 11, 12
\015\012
\015\012Once the screen is free of the chassis - its time to remove the little rubber scerw covers in the lid, and disassemble.

\015\012Good Luck!! Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated!!

Not a very hard thing to do. Should buy in pairs. Here is one place that has them for sale.
