My HP computer listed above has a design flaw where the left hinge of the monitor breaks from the plastic. Maybe someone here is familiar with that popular HP laptop problem.


Anyway, a small bolt came off when the hinge broke and it got into the fan and stopped the fan from spinning. I was able to remove the bolt but the fan would no longer spin. I put the computer back together after taking it apart but now the computer will not even turn on. It does nothing. 


Will replacing the fan get the computer to turn on again or is there something else happening here?


Also I bought a used HP Pavilion m6 that has the same hinge problem but it works. Does anyone know if I can swap parts between these two computers interchangeably? The dv7 is a much faster better computer, but maybe I can use the housing of this other computer and put the better parts into the m6?
