I know this sounds trivial, but I would double-check the cabling and connections - I don't think there is anything specific about the cover itself, it might be just pressing/moving a cable/connection while closing it.

I try many times,all the same,the problem is the cover.I think the reason is i put it in my backpack all day when i got it.and it be press,the cover is a little out of shape.

It's not bent, I know what you mean. I have an aorus gaming box 1080 and the cover is a little concave, I think it is like that by design. Don't worry, you didn't break it.

I have it with an x1c6 (same chipset) and I have problems connecting. Last time what worked was lowering the iGPU memory to 256mb and got Windows to detect it, now it can't again. Thunderbolt software sees that it's plugged in, but Windows Nvidia driver can't see it. I think it's a problem with the card. Def not the cover, the cover is fine.
