is the crack completely from side to side?

I would use a resin/epoxy, very minimal amount. You don't want to epoxy the lid down from the hinge after all. I am not familiar with the laptop I don't know how the hinge is designed.

Method 1
You may have to epoxy something over the hinge, so it covers either side of the crack, to keep the crack closed. This method will hopefully keep the epoxy from the inside of the hinge

Method 2
You can not have any of the epoxy bleed into the actual functionality of the hinge. The epoxy has to remain outside the hinge, but inside the crack.

Make the epoxy/resin thick so it doesn't seep into the hinge.
You can get this at any hardware store.

Do not use Krazy Glue.
Do not mend/melt.
