G50-80 one screw fell out

I bought this notebook last April and I've been using it for at least 4 hours every single day. I did found a black screw on my table early this morning then I turned my notebook upside down to see one screw missing. This does not affect the laptops's performance however it alarmed me. Yeah, it might have been unscrewed due to the laptop's vibration but this made me worry that my laptop might not last that long. I had not experienced this on my 5 year old laptop and I don't think it is normal. Just posted this to see if people encountered this problem too.

Dear rojun,

 

Welcome in lenovo community,

 

I'm sorry for what happened to your laptop, but i can say that it is not a common issue with the laptop,

 

My advice to you right now, is to send your laptop kindly to lenovo service center at your country for full check up, to make sure that we will not face this kind of problems again.

 

Kindly find the link below for more details,

Blue Loctite is the best solution for returning screws into the notebook.   Just make sure to go snug, not overly tight on them or you chance doing more harm then good.

Just to address the issue of screws loosening up... It happens with all notebooks to some point or another, and vibration is not the main cause, it is heat.  More specifically - the heating and cooling of the materials at different rates of expansions and contraction.  This works screws, nails and other fasteners out of materials faster than vibrations can, but vibrations are also an issue as well, thus the application of "Loc Tite" to keep them in place,
