Cracks near hinge Acer 3613 laptop

\015 Large cracks have appeared on the outside bottom left hand and right hand side of each hinge on my Acer 3613 laptop. They are going to et bigger each time I open the lid and I dont want the problem to get any worse. Is there anything I can do like use silicone sealant or does anyone know of a better solution. My husband suggested Duck tape!\015

Answers :

Apply a lubricant to the hinges themselves - not a ton of lubricant, as you don't want anything running down into the laptop proper.

\015\012What sound like has happened is that the display has somehow been in a bind, and therefore the hinges are in a bind. This makes it harder to moved the hinges, and thus when you open the lid it is making the cracks.

\015\012You may also want to unseat / unscrew the hinges and re-tighen the little screws that hold them in place.
