MacBook's display neck is disoriented

So, I have this MacBook who’s display neck is disoriented and it no longer overlaps with the keyboard area while closing the lid as it should normally do. The display is fine and everything works fine but I’m just concerned about closing and reopening the lid everytime.

You will find 6 screws holding the screen to topcase once you remove the bottom cover. All you have to do is to loosen them a bit, correctly position the screen and tighten them again in the right position. You can get a help figuring out what to do in detail with the following guide:

The most easy way to test your issue is to connect the mac to a external display and try to reproduce the issue.If you don’t see the issue in the external display is the cable because a loose hinge is related to loose display but if you see flickering when you move the screen could be the cable.Try with a external display

@gadgetboxrd - Sometimes you need to read the question a few times to figure out what it is.

Mohit's issue is the display lids hinges.

Lets re-read what he stated: "display neck (hinges) is disoriented and it (the display) no longer overlaps with the keyboard area while closing the lid as it should normally do. The display is fine and everything works fine"

So the display's image is working just fine!

@danj was just trying to kindly draw your attention to the fact you didn't understand the question but it seems the matter is beyond any hope.
