    the iBook I'm using, belongs to the school my mom works at because my laptop died. it fell off the couch and i heard some good snapping noises. everything looks fine except that, especially in the area between the hinges, the frame for the lcd sticks out away from the lcd towards the keyboard...

    i can't find where a screw or any kind of snap holds the lcd to the frame to kill the space between them. if anyone has any ideas please help :confused:

    did you try to put some computer glue on it to see if that holds it in place?

    not yet, i'm petrified to start gluing stuff... this isn't my laptop that's the biggest problem right now... i don't see why there isn't anything already to hold it in place??

    That is probably the bezel frame snapping. There is a stff metal frame that holds the plastic flush to the LCD, and if it breaks the plastic won't sit properly. The repair is $50-100 in parts, and can be done without too much difficulty if you're comfortable working with computers.
