Hi,

 

Just that, the plastic around the left hinge is broken and interferes with the opening and closing of the laptop, can this be replaced?

 

Thanks.

 

John

You might be able to buy that bottom half of the case, otherwise the only cure  is to disassemble the hinges, both of them, from the lid(top) and the bottom half.  Remove the plastic pieces from the screw and hot glue the whole mess back in place.  Then remount the hinges.  Not a permanent fix, but the replacement of the bottom plastic case will require complete disassembly of the MOBO and drives,  its all gotta come apart.
