Customer Question
I have an HP...

I have an HP laptop I need a right hinge for ModelRTLB188EE

Technician's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your HP is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

My Laptop Model RTLB188EE is 3 or 4 years old.

Technician's Assistant: What kind of computer are you printing from (Mac or PC)? What Operating System (OS) are you running?

This is a Laptop not a printer its an HP

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?

This was dropped about 3 months ago and is getting worse. I have to walk the hall at an Assisted living campus.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Printer Expert to know before I connect you?

Again it is a LAPTOP NOT a Printer

Hinge for this model is very hard to find in local market. You can approach a local laptop repair shop, they may have the hinge from old broken laptops and can fix it on your system. You can also try to repair the hinge yourself. Please check this instructables and this youtube video.
