Hi ppl ,, I am in trouble ,,Apparently I am out of warranty plan , and any kind of Repair center will charge me minimum fee 50 box just for consultation !! or we may call it diagnose ,,

My problem started when I accidentally broke a tiny fragment of my exterior rare side as picture has illustrated my problem .. As a result it was jammed and make it impossible to detached it ,, I was wondering how bad this damage i sand how much will cost me for the possible replacement or if there is any alternative/cheap solution I would be grateful .

Any repairs to the top half of the laptop are going to be risky, because the screen is a very fragile, very expensive component. It looks like the hinge has broken off from the LCD top cover, either through bad screws, broken posts, or any number of plastics in the LCD assembly.

Just so we're on the same page, and your pictures indicate otherwise, this laptop is an XPS M1710, correct?

Consult your service manual, specifically the display bezel section for details on removing the bezel to see the damage to the hinge. Once you are confident that the problem is in fact the top cover plastics and not the hinge itself, replacing the top cover is a whole nother beast.
