Steampunk mod on HP Envy 17 in fix broken hinges

HP Envy 17 in are manufactured to cheap quality standards and there's been many instances of the hinges pulling out of the cheap plastic that there are fixed to in side the laptop. I see a lot of people epoxy them. I didn't have any epoxy at home. I looked all around for some screws, don't have the right size. Finally wound up using some twenty-year-old for resistors that have been laying around to SteamPunk this thing maybe it last couple of months. :) do not buy HP computers!!!
