Default Laptop hinge

Hubby would like me to ask if anyone knows where he could get a laptop hinge repaired in/near TV. Thanks!

FYI....hubby went to the MMD place and it was going to cost $70 for labor plus repairs. Decided he could live with it the way it was until he can get a new one.

If it's like my Dell Inspiron, two hidden screws came out at the lower right edge of the screen. I gently preyed up the silver surround, it pops off in several spots. I found the loose screws, one for the hinge itself and the other for the cover (that one was under a rubber cover). I screwed them back with a jeweler's screwdriver and some locktite on the threads. Then I pressed the cover back into place and stuck the rubber cover back on the exposed screw. Took about a half hour from when I started pulling the cover back. Good as new.

TV Computer Club meets on Fridays at 1 pm at the Hacienda CC near Spanish Springs. They invite nonmembers (guests) to bring your problems and they will offer their expertise advice.

At first there's a meeting and usually the topic is announced in the Daily Sun and around 3pm they will take questions and/or issues to help resolve.

At Markets of Marion, near the front entrance, there is Herb Olmstead who does computer/laptop repairs; he is there on weekends, and you can just take a computer in and he will evaluate it; he has been in business, retired from corporate world computer work, for a long time; his ph # is 352-216-5034, where you can call him anytime. Very nice, reasonable and knowledgeable; and will do a free estimate on computer repairs.
