Windows 10: What to do about a Broken Bottom On Laptop Case?

    What to do about a Broken Bottom On Laptop Case?


    I'm currently buying a used Laptop, that is decent enough to the Specs I'm looking for, but It has a broken bottom case, and I mean really smashed into type. Being that it is one of those expensive type ones, where can one buy replacement cases for Laptops, if not, find similar cases that can hold all the main components, through a similar laptop case? Either that or can I request/buy such a bottom part from the manufacturer?

    Details be, it's a Lenovo Idea pad Y 40-80/40. 14in.

    I was going to post a link to disassembly instructions, but for the bottom case it's just 'remove all the screws'...

    ...oh well, here it is any way :)

    Disassembly instructions are helpful, even when it seems pretty straight forward. Be careful to keep track of what screw came out of what hole. Sometimes they are different lengths, and even different thread sizes. Put the wrong screw in the wrong hole and you can break things.

    You are right of course but Lenovo seem to be pretty simple - mostly the screws are all the same - I only have 2 sizes on mine.

    I was thinking buying another laptop with a smashed screen (from ebay) would be an idea but @NavyLCDR found a much cheaper way of doing it. Kudos to him.

    This is very good advice.

    Putting a long screw in where a short one was is when things can go bad. Especially if it grinds into the motherboard.
