Laptop lid won't close - how can I fix this?

I think maybe the clips at the top of the display (either side of the webcam) maybe be broked. The laptop therefore does not close. What can I do to fix this?

Yes those clips break

OR if you've had the top case off it may not be aligned correctly Replace the latch It's a fair amount of work, and rather expensive.

A soft case would add some protection and cost about 1/2 as much the part not considering the time to remove the broken one and install a new one.
