    When I was using my laptop at the library, when I readjusted my screen and I heard a cracking noise, I thought nothing of it, I went home and used it again and when I put it back in its skin, I noticed the leftmost hinge was really loose, so I clicked it back into place, and I noticed that one of the parts were missing. It must have poped off at the library. Case in point, do any of you know where I can get this part for my laptop?

    3D printing would be the best option. You could also try looking on ebay for shells or spares'n'repairs of that laptop model.

    Edit: if all else fails, there's always duct tape.
