Possible cause:

One or both display hinges are broken.

Possible troubleshooting steps and repair solution:

Most likley one of the hinges, or both hinges are broken. You have to disassemble the display panel and find out which hinge is broken. When you replace the broken hinge, do not forget to inspect the second one. If the second hinge feels loose, consider replacing it too.

If one of the hinges is broken try replacing it as soon as possible. Using the laptop with a broken hinge may cause the video cable or LCD screen damage.
