How to repair a broken left hinge on a HP Pavillion dv9008nr laptop computer? Answered

I can not close the lid of the laptop because the left hinge has seperated from the plastic that frames the viewing screen and back of the lid. Is there a video or illustrated description of how to repair the broken hinge? I was told that the design placed a heat dissipator device too close to the left hinge and the heat caused the plastic to fail. Is this true?

I don't know about the heat deal, but if im reading your description correctly, you are going to need the who bottom shell of the laptop. The "frame" that the hinges sit on are all part of the casing. Search ebay for your part.
