I would give it to a reputable repair shop to get it fixed. It sounds like the actual hinge itself has cracked. It could be the screw standoffs on the housing of the chromebook on the bottom that has snapped. Sometimes they require replacing the hinge and/or use of epoxy to glue the broken screw standoffs for the hinges in place. If it isn’t done properly (too much / too little epoxy) you won’t be able to close the casing of the laptop properly so like said before, leave it to a repairman to do.
