Had a couple of customers come in yesterday with broken 1525 Dell Inspiron laptops with very similar problems. The first customer's computer was the worst with the entire top portion of her computer separated from the bottom. It looked like someone had broken the laptop over their knee like a stick. The second one was very similar as the back of the right hinge had separated from the LCD cover behind the screen. Been seeing a rash of 1525 laptops with the same problem lately. Easily fixable, just a bit odd.
Last customer came in with a desktop that was having an audio card problem. Computer is 8-9 years old but still runs, just no sound. Should be an interesting one to diagnose.
