Can I close my laptop after dropping it?

Block Image

My Dell Studio laptop fell to the floor while it was on. It still works great, but makes a noise when I start to close it. So I don't close it! I turn it on and off, but don't close it.

The only physical damage appears to that the left-side hinge, or pivot, is not firm, and the metal cover is slightly bent.


Can I go ahead and close the laptop completely, or might that cause some further damage internally, making it inoperable?

Thank you!

Post an image of your damage with your question. right now I would suggest not to close it since it may tear the hinges from the casing etc.


How do I post an image? I tried 'Copy' and 'Paste'.

strodney, yes you can, but not for very long. the hinge definitely looks unstable and eventually will break all the way. That would leave your display hanging on one hinge. I suggest that you replace it pretty soon.
