Dell Inspiron 1525 hinge Nut

The left hinge got stuck and when I closed the lid, and the plastic snapped. The hinge is so tight that i can only move it by using some pliers and a lot of strength. The product is not under warranty and I have read about the common problems.
So what I need to do is loosen the nut on the hinge using something like this:

A nut screwdriver.
But I do not know the size, e.g 5mm or 5.5mm
Can somebody please tell me the size of the nuts on the hinges of a Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop.
Thanks in Advance

A lot of Dell Laptop have a hinge problem.

We should work together to make a complaint against it.

Dell should work to solve their quality problem.
