Need a small part for my HP NC8230.
I really love this old laptop and I'd like to get it back to being 100% and that's the only part I need to do that. Anyway, thanks in advance for any help ya'll can give.
Hi and welcome
There is a HP service providing original parts.
Your NC8230 is listed, but there are a lot of submodels.
I would start searching there if that battery latch is available.
Other than that, maybe ebay has a broken or working NC8230.You must always face the curtain with a bow.
If you have something like this in Tenn. or have a online friend in San Francisco who can do the footwork.

Maybe, just maybe. You can email the weird warehouse and get the part through the mail but I'll be damned if I know it is possible.
Edit: after reading ithoris post
Buy it now.
I was actually thinking that I just might have to buy an old, stripped down NC8230 for $20 bucks off of E-Bay or somewhere and use it for parts. Might be cheaper in the long run then spending $5 for the part and $10 for shipping. LOL. Thanks for the links guys, I'll check them out.

I saw a couple decent deals on stripped down nc8230's over at EBay so I'm just going to keep my eyes open for a deal on one. That way I'll have a few other spare parts too.
