Laptop Breaking Off?

I was carrying my laptop open to the living room of my house to show my parents a video. I noticed the back of it, cracked a bit, and it looks like part of it is breaking off like coming off. Here's a photo -



Is there a way to fix this, will it come off and cause harm to me or anything?

You could try to glue it back with superglue, or use tape to close the gap be careful you do not block the vents..

I would not put my fingers or anything else in the gap with the mains power on, as you will get a nice jolt from it.

That is possibly but I want to use my current laptop until it dies out altogether.

The cause of that failure is from the laptop screen being stressed. If you open the lid beyond a certain point it stresses the screw extrusions and they eventually break. The only thing holding the hinge on that side is the pressure from the other screws in that general area. You might even get lucky and find that it is just a missing screw.

...Or carry the laptop by the open screen, or....
