    Hello.

    I have an Asus X56TA laptop. It worked like a charm until yesterday, when suddenly, without any warnings, my left hinge just broke off when I was closing the screen.

    It seems that the hinge just got _completely_ stuck. Really, like it was made of solid concrete. So when the screen worked as a lever, it easily broke off.

    To illustrate my problem, here are some pictures:

    Anyone has any tips what to do with this? Is there any chance of making the hinge work again? If yes, I thought of using some very powerful glue to "repair" the hinge. The plastic cover is 100% OK, so I only need some usability :)

    I also found a brand new hinge for my notebook model on eBay. Is it possible to remove the broken hinge and install the new one?

    Thanks in advance for all the tips.
