Hoping someone can push me in the right direction. I've had this laptop for a little less than a year. When I first received it from amazon, the screen was smashed. I'm assuming shipping issue, Acer replaced no problem. Now this laptop is still under warranty, and after sitting on hold for about 30 minutes with their support number I gave up. The left hinge on the monitor has came loose. Now anytime you attempt to move the laptop screen it cracks plastic and pops the bezel around the screen out of "socket". After doing a bit of googling a lot of people seem to have an issue with the left hinge. Unlike most other users, my hinge came off inside of the monitor section not the base.
So here is my question, can I just use some hot glue inside of the cracked spaces where the screws used to screw into and let it set with a small vice. I'm concerned about the heat near the 2 small wires in near the hinge (assuming display port and antenna?). I'm not going to send back to Acer and spend $200-$300 to fix a $350 laptop.
This is actually kind of disappointing, I think this is my 6th acer and I bought my girlfriend the same model and her machine shuts off randomly when on battery. My guess bad cell in battery but since the battery isn't easy to get too, I'm not in a hurry to rip it apart. Thanks for any input.
