    the metallic material that the hinge attaches screws into to attach
    screen to the computer body broke on my HP omni book 6000. i was
    wondering what glue people out there on the internet recommend? super
    glue(CA) or the fast drying epoxy(5 min)? is there an issue with
    flexability? its a pretty stressed area.

    I would use JB WELD, found at any auto parts store, better than most
    clear expoxys, also do NOT use the "quick setting" types of glues
    either, not as strong and as adhesive as the regular "over-night"

    If it's what I think it is (mine went on my 6100, very similar laptop) Then
    forget about glue, there is nothing remotely strong enough to bond it.
    Replacement of the broken item is the only solution.

    If it is like the one's I've fixed they are a very highly stressed
    area. This is due to the damper in the hinge causes a lot of pressure
    on the hinges. The one's I've repaired had to be completely taken apart
    and the arm was brazed. It the arm is pot metal (gray looking stuff) it
    can't be welded so it will need a new arm.
