My laptop is less than a week old, and whenever I press the palm rest area(on either side of the trackpad), or the bottom of the laptop, it makes a slight creaking noise. The sound was very less at first, but now it's grown to the extent that even if I lift/ pick up the laptop, it'll make that weird sound (maybe due to body flex). This is not what I expected from a full metal body laptop. I contacted another user with the same model, and he said he doesn't face any body flex. MSI support here is crap, and the nearest service centre is around 700 kms away(probably more). Is there any way that I can fix it at home, or anybody facing the same issue?

Where is your place of stay?
Actually,you commented that nearest service center is around 700kms. away...so just a bit inquisitive. Never mind bro.

Yeah, Flipkart is going to send someone this week. I was just wondering if it could be fixed at home, or will I have to bear the replacement hassle.
