repair part source needed

by rbigg / March 1, 2007 10:12 PM PST

Recently got a Micron Trek 2. The only problem with it so far is that the little knife blade with is part of the latch which holds the lid down broke off and fell out.

Would appreciate any info as to where I might be able to get a replacement latch assy.

I went to the Micron successor company and they referred me to two different places. I called both, got the usual voice mail, explained my problem and what I wanted, but neither called back.

I'm wondering if the latch is common to a number of other laptops, and, if so, maybe there's a generic provider of repair parts out there.

This is where Ebay and such come in handy. You may find you have to buy another dead laptop to salvage the one piece you want. There's a lot to compare with here to auto salvage operations. This is also why I pan the smaller laptop distributors.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
