Laptop screen not sticking to bezel

I have a HP 250 G5 laptop and I took off the bezel slightly (not all the way though) but not to replace the screen, however I realised too late that on the bottom side of the screen part it had sticky adhesive that sticks to the bezel. But as I was taking off, the adhesive rips which it apparently does for hp 250 g5 screens.


But as I am not replacing the actual screen, I am left with the bottom part of the bezel slightly loose.


Is there anything I can use to stick this back down? I am thinking thin double sided tape but I don't want to prevent the bezel being taken off when I need to do it to change the screen etc.


I hope this makes sense.

Yes you make sense but your requirement is somewhat unusual !  The usual requirement is for something like Araldite, a two component resin glue, or Superglue which basically welds two items together. You want to able to split it at some time in the future.


I suggest you take a look at Hobbycraft, either their web-site or go to one of their shops if there is one reasonably near you. I think you are looking for something like that silicon sealing compound you find around sinks and showers. It is flexible and doesn't harden. A quick look at their web-site suggests they are very good on glue !


You could even try a very thin little strip of bluetack.

I would use the double sided tape and have used it on other laptop bezels and if the original tape is thicker then i would use 2 or 3 pieces stuck together to make it thicker for my needs.
