Tonight I was attempting to reseat my laptop's hard drive and must have exerted too much force when attempting to close it back up because on the righthand side the hinge broke off of the roll cage. It looks like that not only am I going to have to replace the hard drive but now I'm going to have to figure out how to fix the hinge. Does anyone know how to fix this? It looks like I'm going to have to buy a whole new palmrest assembly because that's what the hinges attach to (the metal-roll cage underneath the motherboard, gpu, etc). Is it possible to just buy the roll cage by itself? I can't find any replacement palmrest assembly for the yoga 500 15isk, only for the yoga 500 15ibd. Would the 15ibd palmrest assembly work? Not sure if it would even be worth fixing at this point. Maybe I should buy a new laptop.
Any help would be appreciated.
