Toshiba Satellite A215-S7422.

It's an IDE. I was just curious to know what it was.

In that case, if I were to take on the task of replacing hinges for the laptop down the road, Toshiba wouldn't be able to void my warranty if I did a successful repair. Eh?

Check your invoice or with the manufacture. They are only a phone call away.

No, but they might make it difficult for you. Indian tech support like theirs just reads stuff from a script, they're not necessarily concerned with laws and so forth. But if you're still under warranty couldn't Toshiba just do such a repair for you? You'd have to pay to ship it to them most likely, but it's probably worth the $20.
