Hard to tell with the photos, but it looks like the screen is cracked too.

Over all, it's going to be rather expensive to repair.
You are better off seeing if your car insurance coveres items stolen from car. And then arranging some one (not you or family memeber) to do a smash'n'grab on the laptop.

No cracks in the screen. Just the hinges are broken and the screen won't turn on. Nice idea lol. Can't say I'd have even thought of it. I'm going to be sending it in as I mentioned in my other post.

heh, if they won't fix it, you won't have any choice but to fix the **** thing yourself if you look at google ebays HP's ebooks and find a replacement screen with the hinges you could make the repairs yourself.

If they don't fix it you fix it.
You can build and repair desktops right ? try your hands at laptops it's not hard to fix them if you know what to do.

True, I've taken apart my old laptop. I'm not too worried about the hinges, but I don't have a clue why the screens gone out. Maybe they can provide me with that information.
