I have a laptop I'm working on, and the plastic parts which protrude, and then a metal kind of nut lays in them to receive a screw from the outside in order to hold the shell closed are broken off. It gives the effect of "never end" unscrewing when the screw is being taken out.
I filled up the broken gaps where those nuts are supposed to fit, and then placed the nut into the epoxy. After it dried in there, I piled up more of a thicker viscosity round it to form a base.
Around the screen the border snaps on with small snaps all of the way around the screen. Some of the snap holders have popped off, and so I'm trying to epoxy them back on.
On of the screw holes for holding the border on around the screen was stripped out, so the screw head would just pass through it. I needed a washer, but instead I have used tape on the backing, filled in the hole with epoxy, and I'll drill a new hold that is small enough the head of the screw can not pass through it.
How do you guys deal with these problems?
