Today, finally my new used hinges arrived, and I had an opportunity to change the broken ones with new ones. Hinges traveled to me from China to US and the to Georgia, pretty impressive route, right?

Anyway I'm happy with my new hinges, and hope that my beloved laptop HP Compaq 6510b will please me for few more years. 

Update: The good old HP Compaq 6510b still pleases me, but I have finally bought a new ASUS laptop (September, 2015)

I ordered them via Amazon and had to wait for about a month to get them in Georgia.
