I've been a lurker of this forum for a while but recently my roommate dropped my tm2t laptop and now I come asking for advice. The little black bar of the hinge is cracked all the way through on both sides and the screen can no longer stand up on it's own. I've gotten a quote from HP for about $160 to ship it to them and such but it will take over 10 days. It is both my work and personal computer and that will be a big set back for me. I am wondering if I have any other options. Has anyone else had this happen before? Thanks a bunch in advance.
