My laptop has been making a horrible scraping noise when I've been opening it for the last few days, and I thought it was catching on the back of my desk (I have one where the back opens up to store the cables), but my partner last night noticed that the screen is coming off!!
I've found on this site that there have been several people with the same issue where it's popping out at the bottom left of the screen near the hinge. My laptop is under 2 years old and has only ever been used on my desk or the kitchen table, never goes out of the house and I've always taken good care of it as it was not cheap!
Has anyone got this resolved through HP as obviously I am out of my warranty, but it's not fit for use if it lasts less than 2 years!!

HP Support came back to me yesterday finally on WhatsApp. After I explained the problem and sent photo's, he had me running a hard drive test, a memory test and a system board test. Not sure what this had to do with my screen coming off!
I did go back to clarify and he said that it needs to be sent to the service centre and would be chargeable. I explained that the laptop had been well looked after, it is not "fit for purpose" for falling apart after 23 months and £1500, and from a search on here it seems to be a common issue but he wouldn't help.
I asked for the email of the complaints department for which he replied "Sorry, we do not have complaints email information", so I asked how to make a complaint and he was very reluctant to give me anything! After a few more comments he did give me an email address so going to email today.
Not happy with my customer service from such a reputable company at all 😡

I finally had a call from the HP support team this morning, who was pleasant but adamant that couldn't do anything to help apart from a chargeable repair as I am out of warranty. I reiterated what I thought about the unit not being "fit for purpose", and that there are lots of similar cases on here for the same laptop so there is obviously a fault with it, but they wouldn't do anything. I asked for it to be escalated to complaints which she did do.
I got a call back later the same day from a gentlemen from customer care in France, who told me the same thing. I asked for it to be escalated higher, but apparently he was as high as I could go although he admitted he had no technical knowledge (?!!!). Surely an employee for HP dealing with customer complaints should also have technical knowledge? He did however admit that they do not tend to manufacture 17" laptops anymore, so the issue with the screens falling off may be an indication why.
Altogether I am seriously not happy. It's taken 2 weeks for me to get nowhere, and my screen is now barely hanging on on the left side so I need to get something done asap before it gets even more damaged.
Seems I wasted the extra money I thought I'd invested for a decent laptop. And to think I wasted my inheritance money from my Grandparents on this 😢
