How to R&R broken laptop hinges. Toshiba Satellite A45 manual.

How to remove and replace broken laptop hinges. Toshiba Satellite A45 manual.

I used this guide for my older laptop, as one of it's hinges was shot. I'm glad I ordered both sides, as I the second one gave way during the dis-assembly process.

I don't know what it is about this machine, well actually, I do. I love this hardware. This machine has it's stock install of XP on it, and yea, It's about time for a fresh re-install due to the installed-uninstalled stuff over the past 5 or so years. I've upgraded its Ram and the Hard drive twice, and it just keeps on ticking. It lacks a built in WiFi Adapter, and DVD burner, but hey, it's solid with XP and every Linux Distro that I've tried with it runs 100% right out of the box. The lack of a built in WiFi card helps with that number. It's only down side is it's size and weight, and power consumption.
My newer Satellite is lighter has a larger screen, but the sound card and Ubuntu aren't playing nicely. But Elive did. - Might try that one day, but still prefer something that I can setup that has more of a XP feel to it, so my mouse finds things easier when I go from one machine to another.

Note to self. Send a donation their way.
