I have a 1gen Air. It has worked flawless until now, when it made a strange sound. I just had it on my lap, but something happened to the mechanics between the computer and the screen. And now I cant even close the screen


Does anyone know what to do? :confused::confused::confused:

Ive tried to gently apply pressure but it didnt make any difference :(:(:(

The hinge has failed. It's a known design flaw, and if you take it in to an apple store they'll repair it for free....

Ok must be the hinge, I googled for "macbook air hinge" and found similar pictures.
