Broken plastic near the hinges

HP Recommended
HP Laptop model 17
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

I've had a HP 17" laptop for one year. The hinge appeared to be broken on one side. I took it apart and found small plastic pieces broken off near the hinges. I glued everything back, but realized when I tried to attach the plastic case to the bottom, two of the four plastic buffers that are attached to the inside of the case are virtually gone, broken off.  They are the most crucial of the four because they are the two outside holes near the hinges. I don't think I can fabricate these from scratch.  Does anyone know if I can order a new bottom case for this laptop?
