Toshiba Satellite hinge "repair".

My girlfriend's computer has been dropped several times. The screen had almost broken free and so I decided to see what I could do about fixing it.

NOTE: I am a mechanic, not a computer repair guy. I tend to take risks and do things my own way... things that would never be recommended by a computer person.

Also note. Days later and the computer refuses to boot to windows. It froze up over night, and when restarted, it went to "automatic repair" and shuts off after a few hours.
