So I also have a broken laptop hinge.  I have tried the help line, Best Buy (the orignal vendor), amazon for replacement parts and in the end I have been unable to get any assisitance.  I am desperately hoping to find an assist and ge tthe hinge fixed since I have innumerable files that I cant risk losing to the  trnafer process.  Is there anyone that can get me a repair slot (i will pay) withth the HP  product folks so they cna fix this  hinge?

Fwiw-anyone with files they can't lose should have an external USB hard drive for backups. Any machine can have a hard drive failure at any time taking your files with it.

 

When you say you have tried the help line-is that HP support number? If they can't get you fixed up there may be no parts available.

 

What is the full Model or Product number of the laptop?

I checked HP Partsurfer- no parts available. Enter your Product number without the #aba. Enter it as VM085UA to get the part number of hinge and look for it online-Amazon or eBay usually has a source.
