If you can see the bottom of the screen, you have broken hinges. This will also damage the screen and may cause it to become unresponsive.


What Can You Do to Enhance the Life of Laptop Hinges?

While regular cleaning and maintenance can extend the life of a hinge, sometimes it's necessary to do more than just maintain the current condition. We'll go over what you can do to enhance the life of your laptop hinges

You should make sure that your laptop is maintained properly. Clean dust if your laptop is used in dusty or dirty environments. If you use your laptop in a job that requires you to be in areas with heavy smoke or dust, your laptop may require a deep clean on the surface and the laptop hinge area.

Lubricate your hinges. Lubricating your hinges will keep them from sticking as badly, which will prevent annoying noise from entering your laptop. You can purchase a special pen to apply the lubricant to the hinges. Make sure to clean off any excess oil before continuing, as this can accumulate on the hinge and cause it to stick even more.
