Step 1: Step 1
for the laptop to avoid scratching the case.
Step 2: Step 2
the lower right corner of the Display Cover as shown.

Velcro pad. Flip the ribbon over and secure it to the
case with a small dab of silicon adhesive

inch pad of industrial strength Velcro to
the lower right hand corner.

panels on the bottom of the case.
Secure the second length of ribbon to this pad
Step 5: Step 5
safely (but carefully) removed without damaging
the case plastics. Note that the top ribbon is
flpped over as performed in Step 3, which
allows mating with the other ribbon once

Step 6: Step 6
joined at whatever viewing angle is desired. The

the keyboard and can easily be tucked inside, and
folded out of the way as the case is closed.
Step 7: Step 7
inexpensively correct an unfortunately all too common, weak hinge
design flaw in many laptops, especially the Compaq 2700;
a flaw that Compaq or HP still refuse to admit.
Nor will they offer any support to replace these faulty hinges.
