Having problems with your HP Compaq Presario V5000Z Notebook ?

I need to know how to replace the display hinges on my presario

\015 Model v5000\015\012I already have the new parts\015

Answers :

\015\0121) Hinges supplied on ebay at about £15 a set. Non original parts seem fine.
\015\012 A mini screwdriver set of decent quality with a magnetic feature helps & Duck (duct) tape.
\015\0122) Switch off and remove from mains source. Also flick battery holding switch and push out main
\015\012 battery. Remove small Phillips screws under battery.
\015\0123) You can try the 'quick' method and not undo the whole of the base screws BUT be very careful
\015\012 as you work not to damage the 2 sets of wires passing through the LH and RH hinges.
\015\0124) Pry off the long back top cover near hinges which has the start button on it and 'Presario' written
\015\012 on. You do this by pushing from front just under F2 F3 SCROLL and PAUSE keys as well as from
\015\012 the back. If you hold the keys down as you pry this helps. Use a thin blade of driver but be careful
\015\012 not to split the thin plastic. TAKE YOUR TIME - BE FIRM BUT DON'T FORCE. Work round it
\015\012 and it will eventually pop out upwards.
\015\0125) You have now access to the hinge cover(s) so remove these and also offending hinge(s) from main
\015\012 body.
\015\012 Don't let the lid sprain the hinges even further or break as existing good one! A temporary
\015\012 hinge of Duck taping lid to base may help.
\015\0126) Take out the little grey rubber plugs from the screen side of the lid. They can be stuck back after.
\015\012 Unscrew silver phillips screws (6 or 8 I think).
\015\0127) The plastic front of lid should now pry off and whole top opens up to reveal the side hinge
\015\012 fastening. Unscrew little black screws and keep safe. Then carefully extract hinge.
\015\0128) Refitting basically just reverse of above. Hinges are naturally stiff to hold the screen so open
\015\012 them up to the best angle to get all hinge screws in. A magnetic screwdriver does help!
\015\012 Also, if both hinges have gone do one THEN the other to avoid pulling the lid cables too much.
\015\012I did mine, hinges fine and laptop still works!
