Product: ENVY 15t-j100
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)
I noticed lately that my laptop has started to separate in the left hinge area. It has been well taken care of and never dropped. Upon further inspection, I found that I am missing at least one, if not 2 of the hinge screws, which is causing the laptop to separate.
Where can I purchase new screws to replace the ones that are now missing? In my effort to diagnose this issue, I attempted to take the laptop apart, but I noticed that there were several different types/sizes of screws holding it all together. What size/type are the hinge screws? Will replacing the missing screw(s) fix the issue with my laptop separating in the area of the left hinge?
