Did your laptop hinges break or are they seizing up?
This is a very common problem and affects almost every laptop make and model.
The damage occurs, apart from the laptop being dropped, because of the hinges slowly seizing up from normal use.

Hinges are for some reason not lubricated in the factory, and due to external conditions, they slowly start seizing up, making the laptop screen harder and harder to close and open.
The result, is the screen ripping out the stumps from the bottom case of the laptop or the stumps from the screen top lid.

This can be very dangerous for your laptop, as through the hinges runs the video cable (connecting the screen panel with the motherboard), as well as the camera and WiFi antenna cables.
If these are ripped out, the repair will be very costly, usually not worth the money.
This is one of the reasons you have to get a laptop serviced at least once every two years (every year if you get's used more than 3-4 hours a day.
If you feel that your screen is getting too hard to open and close, get it serviced by a reputable repairer.
The laptop screen has to have the hinges loosened and lubricated best with a special oil containing particles of graphite, or a sewing machine fine oil will do the trick too.
Always ask your repairer to tell you exactly what is going to be done during the service. If you don't get the correct answer, look for another repairer.
