Hi Everyone, I Have A Toshiba A45 Laptop. The Springs (i Guess) In The Lid Are Shot And Now The Screen Will Not Stand On It's Own. Anybody Have Any Ideas On How To Fix This On My Own. I Heard To Get Another Case Is More Expensive Than Buying A New Laptop. Thanks, Cheri

Michael,

Thank you so much. I have been so upset since this happened. I do a lot of my work on this computer and am not ready to buy another. Besides this one problem, it's been a good computer. So, again, thank you.

Cheri
