Loose Ideapad hinge



I've had my ideapad since late february. Its been a great laptop and I've generally been very happy with it.

Unfortunately, about a month ago the hinge that connects the screen to the base of the laptop has become so loose that the LCD portion of the laptop will no longer stay upright without being propped up against something solid. 


I purchased it from Newegg and they don’t except returns after the first month for laptops.


Anyone have any suggestions?  Thanks

Bets thing to do at this point is to send the laptop for service, never thought that an IdeaPad would have such an issue. Call tech support and have it repaired or replaced.

I'm sure there's no way you can fix this at home, especially if you want tosave your warranty. SC must fix this for free since your laptop is under warranty.
