Having problems with your HP PC Laptops ?

I have a HP Pavilion ze5270 laptop that has a lid switch that sticks. What I have to do is wiggle a straightened paper clip in the switch well to get the screen to come on. Is the switch an individual part or is it a part of a component board? Do you know of a part number? Can you recommend a repair shop that is familiar with this repair in the Rochester, NY area? Is it something I can repair or disable? Thank You, Ted
