Hi xieu90,

 

Welcome to the forum!

 

It's called hinge, you can get part number from the following manual depending on whether it has 15.4'' WXGA or WSXGA+ screen:- http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-69929.html

 

eBay has them, try IBM parts also. 

 

Hope it helps.

@Maliha

Thank you very much, with your support I managed to find its part number

 

SL500 FRU 43Y9690 Hinge 15W

 

in ebay I found it with around 101$ (that is a bit too expensive isnt it ?)

I wonder if Lenovo sell that part.

Do you know how I can contact lenovo and ask them ?

if lenovo sells the part then it would be 2 x times more expensive. 


I think you can contact them through this:- http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-50278.html


Hope it helps.

I will consider to buy it or not.

and I have another question.

In the book you gave me, page 94, step 5  and 6

when I operated my laptop to save or damage it more ^^

I pulled the keyboard out, and those cabel are so small and thin. I wonder if I can put them back like before.

Do you have any advice? (to make the life easier ^^)

 

if only I didnt allow my brother near my laptop.

It's not really hard, watch the video:- http://www.lenovoservicetraining.com/ion/


Notebooks -> Thinkpad -> SL400/SL500 -> FRU removal -> Keyboard.


Hope it helps.
