    plenty of hp laptop hinges on ebay. If its anything like the acers all you need to do is pop the screw covers and tighten them up with a opticians size phillips screwdriver

    Not a DV9000 series laptop is it? Had countless problems with the hinges on my dads

    Yes it is and its just out of warranty, surely Hp should do something about it if they know there is a problem with them

    Even if it's a just out of warranty you still have rights under the SOGA where did you buy it from?

    Currys are quite good for retaining receipts on their system. I had an mp3 player that was just out of warranty and I took it back to them without my receipt and because it was paid by card they managed to find it on the system

    Found receipt it was bought in May last year, where does the time go? Been to Currys today don't want to know. They would put it down to wear and tear. So no joy there, has anyone any ideas please?

    No not yet, as my daughter has the laptop and I think I will need the code off the back and take pictures of it. Frankly the hinges are nearly falling off and its a right state. the laptop does still wotk though. I will wait till half-term and then sort it out.
