The correct way to fix this problem really would be to order a new case, or shop the internet for a non working notebook of the same model and switch the cases out. however not everyone has the money to do this, or is really worried about the job being nice and neat when they are done. In this case it was a school laptop that needed to be fixed ASAP, and the customer didn't really have money to invest in a new case or spare parts. So I proposed a cheaper solution that would work just as well and cost pennies on the dollar. The only down side is a few cosmetic changes.
