I'm having a physical hardware problem with my HP Elitebook: it's impossible to click it shut. It's always a little open.
To start with, only one of the "pegs" stopped working, but now they're useless both of them. I've tried probing with a pen in the locking mechanisms, but can't find anything obvious (like something clogging them up).
Is this a common problem? Now my docking station has begun acting the same way (it's very hard to click the laptop to stick to the station), so I'm beginning to think HP has taken shortcuts design-wise here...
I am having the same problem. Also, my pen has quit working and y key sticks. I am afraid this tablet is not sturdy enough for my use (I am a college instructor who teaches online and take the computer with me everywhere)
Is this a 6930p? I have come across dozens where I work that have the same issue. HP's solution so far is to disassemble the unit, and bend the pins in on the base chassis and reassemble. Which works for a day or two and then back to normal. I'm curious to know if you have the same model.
It is just a flawed design. The part that the lid latches secure to [connected to the base] is a flimsy piece of aluminum that bends easily and can break. I work on 100s of these from lease returns and have about a 20% failure rate. Try velcro on the palm rest and lcd bezel for a quick fix.
