The screw on the back under the right side hinge has become loose and fallen out twice.
I put it back in the first time nice and tight and tightened all the other screws.
It just fell out again! This is with gentle handling. And it took less than a month to wiggle loose.
Would using a little Locktite blue on the screw when I put it back void my warrantee?

No, the use of Locktite blue won't void the warranty and is probably a very good idea since this is a reoccurring problem. Be sure to just use a tiny dab on the threads.

Thanks. Easy fix.
Looking a little more closely, if I put the computer in my computer carrying computer bag,
the back edge of the computer is curved with the weight of the computer riding on the plastic around the
two hinges, likely flexing the
plastic, and even though handled gently, vibrating the hinge plastic around the screws loosening them when on the floor
in the car, or when the case is set down on the floor. From now on I am going to put the computer in its carrying bag, front edge down.
