My aging Dell Inspiron 9400 is well past retirement age. But I need it to hang in there for another month or two. Today, the hinge that holds the lid is various positions broke. The lid is now totally free-swinging. I have to prop it up against a stack of books or something to use it.
Does anyone have an idea for making temporary hinge brace that will allow me to position the lid in various positions?
The first thing that occurred to me was two clamps and some rope or maybe a dowel. Maybe the larger clamps they use for large stacks of paper might work. I don't mind if the jerry-rigged device damages the frame a little, so glue is an option.
Thanks for any suggestions.
