Question Can anyone identify this small metal piece from laptop?

ASUS brand laptop fell to the floor, hitting hard.
Laptop seems to be working but later found a small silver-colored metal piece on the floor nearby. It's about an inch / 2.5 cm x 1/3 inch / 0.5 cm long. There is a stripe across it, near the end of the piece which is blue. Half-way across is an indent / groove in the metal.
Can't figure out how to post a photo here yet.
Apologies for general cluelessness.
Any thoughts as to what the item is and what, if anything, should be done?
Thank you.

Odd. Seems like if it came from the outside of the laptop, you would see where it fits somewhere. Can you tell us the model of ASUS laptop? Looking at disassembly videos/pictures might give a clue.

(Yes, am thinking it might not be from the laptop. It looks too heavy. But then what the heck is it??!!)

Thanks for your reply. The laptop case did not break open at all.
It's possible it spread open enough on impact that the heavy piece of metal fell out, but didn't stay open. You can try just taking the back off using this guide and see if it fits. Or chalk it up to a mystery if everything still works fine and you don't want to risk it.
