I have an issue with my MSI GP60 laptop, the hinges broke and along with them so did the lid switch. Whenever I attempt to use my computer, the monitor will shut off randomly while still open, and must be manually turned back on (such as via Win + P), and this action can be stimulated by applying pressure to the laptop. However, I am unable to locate the lid switch anywhere inside my computer, and have already spent a good amount of time examining the motherboard in search of said lid switch. I have also already set my computer to perform no action when closing the lid through the control panel. If anyone knows of any registry edits I could do to stop the laptop from shutting the monitor off when closed or how to locate the lid switch on this model of laptop, it would be much appreciated.
