Cracked display cable on Compaq notebook

I have a 5/6 year old Compaq Presario 1255 notebook and the cable between the display and main body of the notebook is cracked. All is okay as long the display lid is not closed & the lid is kept in one position otherwise the screen goes blank.
Does anyone know where I can purchase such a ribbon cable from? I have contacted HP/Compaq by email and am still awaiting a reply.
Cheers
