Dropped my laptop, plastic around hinge isnt connected to top of computer on one side

HP Recommended
HP Laptop - 14z-fq000
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I dropped my computer earlier and when i opened it I heard a sort of scraping sound, checked hinge and realized the left side of the plastic isn't connected to the top of the computer anymore. It hasn't fallen off, and the computer still works, but I'm worried that if I leave it like that and let it scrape my computer every time I open/close it it'll cause worse damage. Is there a way to fix this myself, or will I have to take it to a repair store?

Sorry, but this is just a self-help community forum staffed by part-time volunteers.  We are not hardware technicians and have no way to walk you through doing any such repairs.


You really need to take this in somewhere and get the hinge repaired before it breaks off entirely.


Good Luck
