Hi All
Have a broken hinge on our laptop, still under warranty but can't face the hassle of sending it south for 6 weeks. If it's not to expensive I would just rather pay to have it fixed locally. Anyone good in Darwin??
Thanks Lyndon

Laptops are proprietary products and each brand uses it's own parts, you didn't mention brand so it's hard to suggest. If it is a clone brand you could be in for a surprise because typically they don't keep spare parts. I would ring your supplier and tell them the problem and ask them to committ to a repair time before you send it to them.

Hope that makes sense, but that would be your best option as a hinge is sometimes an expensive repair.

Lyndon,
This is a real long shot but, there is a computer shop in Fannie Bay Place Fannie Bay that may be able to help.
I don't really know, but I remember going in there and he seems to be able to talk the talk.
I did a search on Google earth and I am sure that is the correct location.
It's in a block of shops facing east a little west of the race course.
Clear as mud?? Sure it is.
Best of luck.

In the event that you can't obtain parts, have you considered using a 2 pack Epoxy. It might provide adequate repair until you can contact the manufacturers. If you were using the laptop for navigation and the hinge broke, perhaps it might not be covered under warranty. Have you checked ?

Lyndon,

Having been in the computer games for 20 yrs prior to retirement, I would be very surprised if HP didn't have an authorised repairer in Darwin.

Call HP and ask.

HP Contact Numbers

Cheers,

Cruiser
