Laptop Hinge Repair

Laptops are great but they can take quite a beating which is why you might need us to repair your laptop hinge. 

Laptop hinges very greatly in quality. Many of the new designs are simply not good as you can see in the background image there is very little connecting your computer to the screen.

Laptop Hinge Repair

HP Laptop Hinge

In new HP Touchscreen Laptops, there is a tendancy for the hinge to push out through the front of the screen.

This can also break the glass so it’s important not to use the hinge if this starts happening. 

Dell laptop Hinge

Dell laptops have changed their design, resulting in a very high incicence of hinge failure.

The screws which connect the hinge to the back plastic of the screen fail, causing the entire screen to flop around with only one connected side.  

Front and Back Plastic

Front Bezel

We can also repair the front bezel of the laptop. This is usually replaced with a brand new one. 

When the bezel fails the screen can also be damaged, and the hinge mechanism is also at risk of failure. 

Top Case Replacement

Sometimes the hinge will fail from the bottom of the laptop. In this situation the hinge mechansim literally shatters the bottom casing of the computer. 

Total Repair

Hinge, Top Case, Chassis?

Whatever your issue with the outside of the comptuer it can usually be repaired. 


Touch Screen Hinges

With most touchscreen computers, the entire top assembly will need to be replaced. 

Unfortunately this makes the repair a  lot more expensive, however in some cases it can be quicker than replacing individual parts.

Just had a very good experience with this store today. I just went in there to ask for help with a stripped screw inside of a laptop and they fixed it on the spot. The person working there was very friendly as well. Would come here for anything I can't fix myself and recommend this place to others.

Great assistance. I spoke with Gary on the phone, describing how my pc had no video output. I'd already swapped out monitors, cables and vid cards... still nothing. Gary advised me to try something. He suggested I remove and re-seat my RAM and, after following his clear and simple instructions on what to do, my pc was back. I'd fixed it myself, thanks to Gary, who sure knows his stuff. Well done and thankyou Vivid Computers.

Highly recommend Vivid Computers. Friendly, efficient service. Dropped off my laptop, received diagnosis and quote for repair that day. Would have been able to pick it up the following afternoon but for COVID hiccup which forced them to close temporarily. Very happy with their work. They will be my go to from now on for any issues I have.
