Never had this happen before.

This round "filler" I guess is what it is just fell off the bottom of my laptop. It looks as if it has plastic "pins" of some sort that "plug" into part of the bottom that have come off or broken off or something. There is seemingly no reason for this to have happened.

There seems to be no way to put it back on without completely disassembling this laptop which I am not in the mood to do, but, my question is what is the world is the purpose of this hole? It goes to nowhere! There isn't anything under it and seems to have no purpose other than to fall out like this just did and cause a headache!

By the way, the round part is right under the battery and to the left of the primary hard drive as you view the bottom case in the photo.

Thanks in advance.

That's strange. I have never liked HP laptops. Their desktops aren't bad though. I really like/liked the case design on HP desktops. Do people even purchase desktop pcs anymore?. I am really interested to hear what Scott has to say about that strange part.

My guess is that it might have been used as a cooling vent or port on other models using the same base cover. In that case the solid plug might have been replaced with a vented plug of some sort. It appears to have been plastic welded in place initially, I would consider either leaving it out or gluing it back in place. Scott.

Why not use that part?. It's cheap enough. It'll just be a pain in the butt and take a while to dissemble and put back together. I don't have much patience for all that.
