This isn't a technical problem but concerns the laptop casing - think it's called a bezel - recently I had to replace my laptop screen and  when I tried to reattach the bezel, it doesn't click back into place properly at the top corners. Before it's always just clicked back into place when I've pressed it. I know this sounds like a silly problem, but it's just bugging me. When I removed the screen I lost a couple of the screws and had to use new ones but they fit in fine , - also I noticed the frame around the screen seems to bend out slightly on the left around the middle - but the frame is held tightly in place at all ends so I can't see why this would stop the casing attaching properly. Maybe  a piece of the casing that should attach broke off when I took it off or something?

Those replacement screws are just a tad bit to big in the head, not allowing the bezel to seat in that area.  A jewelers file could take the tops off a bit, after removing them of course.

It is at the top where I used the replacement screws , also one at the side - I didn't notice the size of the head, just the length - unfortunately one of the screws at the top has got stuck and I can't get it out -I sent for a box of different size replacement screws, I'll have another look through them and see if any are the same size head as the original screws - I'll try to get some kind of screw remover too for the one that's stuck  and get that out

Those brass inserts in the plastic to hold the screws are unforgiving, be gentle.  Wrong screw, not threaded in all the way, probably cross threaded.  Sometimes a needle nose plier holding the plastic tight while you back the screw out, the pliers will keep the brass insert from spinning in the plastic.
