I am new to this forum but i was told that you guys can give me some good advice on computer repair


I have attached the photo of my laptop, Lenovo y40-80 and it  seems that the screw bushing has fallen off the screen casing. And I think that glue is not a solution given that it would be able to hold that amount pressure. 


Therefore, I do not really know what to do with it. I really want to fix it myself if i can.  In addition to that I do not know if getting a new screen comes with new casing? 


Thank you in advance

The hinge is still firmly attached to the laptop base? Check where the screws go into the case the metal inserts likely pulled out. Is any of the plastic damaged by the inserts? If its just the lcd side of the hinge you can order a new back cover some come with hinges some dont. Unless the lcd is damaged it doesn't need replaced. You can try using 2 part epoxy to secure tbe metal inserts back to the plastic but this doesnt always hold up very well.
