I have a 3 year old ASUS chromebook with a damaged R hinge. As you can see from the pic, it is crooked when closed, and creaks sometimes when I open it.
Also when I go to close it, it does not close properly.
The chromebook also has damaged charging ports (another post), so I'm wondering if it's time to buy a new one, or this one can be repaired.

teddymom : I moved your thread to the Hardware forum where it's more likely to get help.

I'm confused, if you were using the laptop would the damage be on the left or the right ?

Chances are the hinge itself is fine and it's the base or the lid which has damage where the screws through the hinge should screw in. If so you would probably have to replace the damaged part(s) although it might be possible to glue the metal parts that the screws go into back into place.

Without dismantling the laptop so the top and bottom sections of the hinge are visible it's impossible to say for sure.

Thanks for moving the thread, Allan.
The hinge is on the right as I am using it.
