Good day Jake. I really appreciate your video, as it informed me a lot how to actually do maintenance on my laptop without breaking it into smitherines! However, the problem that I am having with my laptop is a bit different than the problem presented in the video. Basically, the plastic hinges on the right part of my laptop broke completely off, and now the right side of the monitor is just slanting. i guess you could understand my problem a bit better if I showed you pictures, so can we communicate with each other? Most preferably through gmail?
Thank you Jake.

Don't use hot glue for this, it's useless and will fail quickly. An ABS friendly resin (JB Weld or similar) is needed, encase the plastic around the screw hole as much as the surrounding components will allow and clamp it.
HPs also use the force of the screws holding the bottom case and palmrest together to reinforce the hinge so be really careful when dismantling the laptop. I have to do this fix on HPs every week, the smaller ones are ok but the 15" and bigger are terrible. The regular base screws also do this, just poor design.

ive tried doing this but the connectors that the screws go into arent even glued to the keyboard anymore so they just sit there holding nothng together

im about to go into my case tomorrow with binary epoxy rated to 3300 psi and a 25watt soldering iron to melt the nuts into the housing again to remake the threading. wish me luck! either one of these should work, but both should be overkill! =) FK HP!
