...is the hinge built in nowadays in the June 2009 macbook pro 13 inch?
Yes, part of the hinge is inside the display assembly, which Apple technicians don't disassemble. Replacing the hinges requires replacing the whole display.
so the main question is, is it possible the hardware test say failure if in the software i messed up the driver or something?
No. When a hardware test is run, none of the software on your hard drive is used or even noticed at all, so it makes no difference whether a driver or anything else is missing. But when you get your machine back, you'll probably need to reinstall your OS and apply all the subsequent updates over again to remedy your overzealous deletion of essential files.15" MBP unibody 2.4GHz/4G/250G; TiBook 1GHz/1G/120G; PTProG3 500MHz/768M/160G, Mac OS X (10.5.8), film and flatbed scanners, projector, graphics tablet, laser and photo printers

Currently Being ModeratedSep 8, 2009 3:55 PM (in response to cl0ud)There is not and probably never will be a general software test that could detect every possible software defect and anomaly, given the uniqueness of every user's software configuration. But hardware testing by Apple technicians is routine.15" MBP unibody 2.4GHz/4G/250G; TiBook 1GHz/1G/120G; PTProG3 500MHz/768M/160G, Mac OS X (10.5.8), film and flatbed scanners, projector, graphics tablet, laser and photo printers
