HP Envy M6 Broken hinge and flaws with outer casing

HP Envy M6
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

I bought this Notebook about 3 years ago. I have been experiencing problems with opening and closing it. It appears to be breaking around the hinges. 

At a glance i don't think it will last more then a few months without something coming loose. 
Is there anything i can do to get this problem resolved before it breaks perminantly.

HP Envy M6 Broken hinge and flaws with outer casing

The hinges are seizing up which puts too much torque and pressure on the supporting parts like the mounting screws and the plastics. Is the plastic actually breaking? Hinges are not expensive to buy. If none of the plastic has broken yet it should be possible to just replace the hinges. If you really want to try to do it yourself we can help with a manual and a source link for the hinges. Since you are 2 years past warranty the only help HP would offer at this point (through official HP Support channels) is a full retail price repair, perhaps a small discount off that. You can also have a local shop do the work and I would expect a labor bill of around $125 plus the cost of any parts.
