Yep, you can have them up side down, perpendicular to the bottom of the case, at 45 degree angles are not recommended. The most important things are making sure they're secure and that their temps are cool enough.
Hi! Paul You need to disarm the computer, enter Ebay with the serial number and brand of your laptop and buy the pieces that are broken and change them. With the service manual it is easy to disassemble and assemble the computer. Never use glue or other product to stick your machine. Stick does not work specially on the hinges because they are too strong. They are strong for support the weight of the monitor and they will broke again. Sometime if you search well you can find broken used computers for parts at a good price on Ebay.
Hi! Check if the brightness of the monitor is off. Other problem can be the monitor's drivers or with the update the monitor has a resolution that your laptop's monitor does not handle. You can check with external monitor conected to the laptop and unistall any video card or monitor driver and restart the computer to see if this solves the problem. A symptom of this is that you see text before the system goes up but when going up the monitor goes black. This happens when the system activates (Boom) the monitor driver or the video card if it is not the correct one the monitor or video card turns off to protect himself. This also happens with the refresh to hi or with a very high resolution. This problem is diferent with each brand or computer model you need find the correct driver or how solve the problem changing the drivers, but you already have an idea of what need to do.
Hi! Peter It does not make sense for me to change a card if it's working fine, but if you are looking is more speed try update and a deep cleaning of the MAC OS system (Maybe the web browser is obsolete) and this helps a little or you can try buying a external USB or Dongle Wifi Antenna more faster.
