Can I close my laptop after dropping it?
My Dell Studio laptop fell to the floor while it was on. It still works great, but makes a noise when I start to close it. So I don't close it! I turn it on and off, but don't close it.
The only physical damage appears to that the left-side hinge, or pivot, is not firm, and the metal cover is slightly bent.
Can I go ahead and close the laptop completely, or might that cause some further damage internally, making it inoperable?
