I have the Lenovo s10 and the cover just happened to break from closing it .
I have seen many other pictures here with the same problem. now I need to look for new parts to fix this .
My w500 is a nice laptop this S10 is built way to cheap. Very dissapointed with mechanical flaws next time I will look at Dell or Asus.

welcome to the forum!
that's rather unfortunate. if you're still under warranty then this can be fixed by service.
if your system is out of warranty or you want to repair it on your own then you can find new hinges for the S10 here: http://www.lenovospareparts.com/All_c_108-2-0.html part numbers 31035691 (right) or 31035692 (left) are what you'd need.
the S10 hardware maintenance manual can be found here: http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/45n3684_01.pdf
