where can I buy a laptop part? (hinge)

My gateway 200STM has a broken hinge. It's under warranty, but gateway says the warranty doesn't cover hinges because the hinges break through "use." (not "abuse" or "misuse"... I apparently voided my warranty by turning on my laptop?)

I've taken a look at the hinge. It's easily accessible and it's clearly broken. All I need is this 1 ounce piece of metal and I could fix it myself, but I can't find it anywhere.

This laptop is also the Dell Latitude x200 and the Samsung Q10 if that helps. Does anyone know where to buy this individual part?

try ebay, its likely available there , but you may have to pick up a "parts" laptop to get it. check under the dell model, as thats most likely to be available.

Also try dell's parts store to see if they sell it separately.
