Cracked keyboard

Q: Cracked keyboard

My office purchased a T480 in June of this year (2018) after my old Lenovo motherboard died. Today my E key split in two. Upon examination our IT guy noticed five more hairline cracks on my most popular keys. This is my third Thinkpad and I have never had a problem with keys. I have not abused the machine in any way - have not dropped it or exposed it to extreme heat or cold. The cracks are clearly stress points on common keys (E, D, L, S). This is a horrible time for such a repair in my work, but at least it is under warranty. Anyone else have this problem after 6 months? Check your keys closely. I didn?t see the cracks until my IT guy pointed them out. I also noticed my model has the only ?unavailable? key part on key replacement websites.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi, I paid top dollar to get this latest greatest Thinkpad X1. I have used Thinkpads for well over 15 years. I was working in a coffee shop, put it in standby, closed the lid, put it in my bag, walked 100 meters to another store, sat down and opened my machine to resume work and found a hairline crack right across the monitor from one side to the other.  The machine seems fine and most the time it is hardly noticeable. I have a full 3 year warranty but IBM wont even consider the warranty because they say it is physical damage and whenever its a monitor that is damaged they wont even begin to consider it covered under warranty. They want AUD640 to replace the monitor.  I was on holiday and so can also claim in my travel insurance but this is highly unusual for Thinkpads in my experience and wanted to knwo if anyone else has had or heard of similar problems with the screen cracking on a Thinkpad X1.

my X1's LCD is fine... i haven't heard many LCD cracking on the X1, other than when people left a pen on the keyboard and slamming shut the LCD.

Hi. My HP Stream x360 accidentally got cracked.  I bought my laptop in August of 2015 and the warranty has expired. Can I buy a warranty that covers accidental damage? I saw a warranty that covered it on the website but wasn't sure if it needed to be purchased on the day that I purchased the laptop.

I opened my laptop tonight and the screen was cracked, I carried it downstairs and did nothing to it, so it is so WEIRD.  I just spent an hour on the phone and politely explained my situation, the person on the phone said it is $424 to fix.  I explained my dissappointment and said this had to have happened before it is clearly a defect.  They told me nope, so I paid the 424, like everyone else and then I get on the forums and it is rampant.   Clearly HP has a problem.   I am pretty nervous, becuase I just bought a boat load for my employees and this thing just cracked this easily, I am seriously considering not ordering any more.  I fought everyone, they all wanted the surface, but we might have to reconsider.  Sorry HP, I think you are great, but you need to figure this out, and not charge everyone so much to fix it.  Too bad the laptop is awesome, and the screen was amazing.

Hi, The answer is no. Not unless you are subscribed to ADP (Accidental Damage Plan) that HP offers. It includes liquid spillage, Accidental drops ets. Manufacturer warranty is for component replacements only but it doesn't include any customer induced damage. This is the number that you should call. HP SUPPORT: 1800 474 6836. Give them you computer's serial and product number for them to create a ticket for you. State what happened to the computer so you could get a support immediately.

We purchased this laptop a week and a half ago and last night I went to open it and watch as it literally cracked down the middle of the screen.  My husband looked at it and it seems that where the lip is to open it in the middle of the lid there is no support.  The hinges are very stiff so that added pressure seemed to be the culprit.  We contacted HP and were on the phone with them for over 2 hours last night and tonight.  They would not listen to what we were saying and told us we had to contact the store we bought the laptop from.  Has anyone else had issues with this?  If you had it fixed, can you tell me what you did to get it fixed?  We own nothing but HP and after this experience with them, we will never own antoher one.

I finished my work, laid my laptop next to my bed and closed the lid. I was shocked in the morning when I heard a "snap" upon openning the lid to find a diagonal crack extending from the microphone hole at the top and ends bottom near the lower right corner of the screen. The LCD part isn't broken, just the glass covering it so the touch won't work. So it needs to be fixed.I talked to the customer support and they said they can't help me, and this was my fault. Well, Yeah is it my fault to open it ?! Apparently opening the screen is too much for this fragile laptop. It's actually was my fault from the beginning for purchasing HP laptop again, I did nothing to the screen except open it. It's really problematic product where I I paid around 500$ last time to replace the cracked screen when they also said that it's "Accidental Damage", and struggled with the popular left hinge problem before, and now is this ... There is something wrong with this screen.I didn't abuse the computer as I did not slam my PC or throw it against something, just opened the lid like I do every day. This shouldn't happen.and if they saw it, they'd know. it's not the first problem and it's not the first hp laptop, but apparently it's the last one.

I left my Pavilion 360 running last night and it didn't hibernate (weird)- when I woke up a few hours later, the LCD screen had popped out a bit from the housing on the upper left hand side (even weirder!) so I pushed it back in and closed the lid.  When I opened it this morning, there is a crack that starts in the bottom middle of the screen and radiates up and out- going to both upper left and right corners and the touch screen no longer works. It's still under warranty but I know that the screen is not covered. It wasn't dropped or misused in anyway! Is there a known defect?

A:Cracked glass

Here's the Manual: Manual For touchscreens, HP does not assign a part number for just the glass and digitizer. In the HP system you must buy the whole 9 yards or nothing. HP Part for whole screen assembly: HD, (1366768), UWVA display panel assembly 809832-001 However, entrepeneurs do offer just the glass and digitizer as a replacement part.  http://www.ebay.com/itm/13-3-HP-Pavilion-x360-P-N-809832-001-Front-Touch-Screen-Digitizer-Outer-Glass-/142145925754?hash=item21188eb27a:g:u7cAAOSwdzVXv1Nu The Manual also shows no procedure to replace just the glass and digitizer. Are you absolutely sure the underlying LED isn't also cracked? Replacing just the glass requires some skills that normal laptop repair work does not involve like keeping out air bubbles. If you have ever replaced a cell phone screen you have the picture and, in fact, you can buy the digitizer and glass and take it to a cell phone repair shop and they can do the labor maybe better and cheaper than a computer repair shop.  If it needs the whole 9 yards, screen and all, those cost about $100 more than just the glass but also available on eBay.  Post back with any more questions.  If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as SOlution" to help others find it.

My laptop was accidentaly dropped and sadly the screen cracked. The laptop works perfectly fine. No black screen BUT the touchscreen is not working. I tried pressing the screen harder but still no touchscreen working. I noticed that when i push/press the monitor, the inside part(Maybe it's the LCD or idk) is untouched. And only the Glass from outside(Maybe it's the digitizer or idk xD) is cracked. now here are my questions:1 - what should I replace? The LCD or Digitizer or the front glass or something that I don't know?2 - How Can I replace it?3 - Can i replace it with a different Screen Model/type? Coz I think a TouchSmart Monitor screen is a hard-to-find item here in my country(btw im from Philippines), so i might use different model if possible. IF NOT,4 - Where can I buy this kind of Monitor Screen? Please suggest me a place or an online shop to buy from(An online shop that can deliver here in ASIA).

I, like many other previously documented, suffer from a badly-cracked screen. I've endured it for months as it's usable, apart from occasional errant pressure on the touch screen from the broken glass mimicking a touch screen action. I can usually get over this by rebooting.However, it's less than ideal. This is an expensive computer with an obvious unforseen design fault, probably the result of taking the case to its design limits. It's living on borrowed time until a catastrophic failure means I gotta do something about it. My questions are as follows:1. My digitizer seems functional, so can I just replace the screen glass?2. If so, where can I get it cheapest?3. Can I get it in the UK? Suppliers?4. If not, does the whole lid need replacement, and where can I purchase one? It's not possible for me to go through the rigmarole of returning it to HP (USA), which is where I bought it, as I'm returning to the UK for 2 months. So, warranty nothwithstanding, I'm gonna have to get this done myself. I hope I've stated the situation clearly, so you can provide a clear-cut pathway for me to get this sorted.Sincerely,Martin K
