Yes. Simply remove the hinge cover (above the keyboard). If you see a small notch on either side, you'll need a small screwdriver to pop it off by prying it and listening for the pops. It's scary the first time, but don't worry, it won't break, it's meant to be a beehatch to get off :P. But be sure your lappy is turned off, battery removed, and that the screen is as open as it can be before doing this 180 degrees!
Once it's off, you should be able to see the hinges, if they look loose, tighten them with jewel screwdrivers.
To put the cover back on, put it back on the opposite direction you took it off, and at a slight angle, press down moving from one side to the other until you hear it snap into place. The very end might take some leverage and muscle.

If this doesn't work, your hinges are getting old (and believe me dell ones are ****) and wearing out, and unfortuneately, only a book or smth can help you then. The only other fix is getting some dell lcd bezel hinges and replacing them (or sending it away to get it fixed), although it will be fixed for sure then.

The screen on my laptop is flipped upside down every thing is up side down how do you flip it back around


Hi smbaglady...

1...Right click on the desktop any where between icons where a free open space is.
Then go to properties>settings and click on the advanced button that should take you to video properties.
In there will be an option to rotate your screen.
2...If that does not work then try the hot key shortcut hold down the Ctrl Alt and up arrow key at the same time to reset your screen to the default setting.

My acer aspire5100-5022 blank screen.hooked up to a external monitor no problem. Is there a fix?


Hello,

The reason the screen of your laptop is not functioning fine could most likely be of two sources.
1. The screen might be faulty,
2. The flip might be faulty.

To fix the problem if the screen is faulty, all you have to do is to replace the screen.

How to fix the screen?
  1. get the appropriate screwdriver,
  2. get an alternative screen or a new screen,
  3. open the laptop from the bottom,
  4. carefully force it open from the sidelines,
  5. try to disconnect the screen from the board,
  6. then you can REPLACE it with the new screen,
  7. couple it back together and it will start working fine.
fixing the flip?
  1. get the appropriate screwdriver,
  2. Open the laptop,
  3. check the connection from the link that assists in flipping the laptop,
  4. Check the cables link on the board,
  5. check for any faults and correct it,
  6. couple it back together,
  7. charge it for a while turn it on.
take care

Dell Inspiron screen coming off at hinges


It's a common problem with Dell Inspiron 1501 / 6000 / 6400 models. So tighten all screws on the bottom, on the back (where power cable connects), then remove cover on top of the keyboard and tighten screws there, then remove screen bezel and tighten screws there - here is how:

then put everything back.

Screen on Sony VAIO PCG-SRX99 needs to be tightened.


you will have to take the bezel front plate of the screen off and check to see if anything there has broken from the hinges. there are usually two-three screws holding the hinge to the screens back cover and two-three holding it in place on the base of the laptop. if all those are intact you will need to replace the hinges.

good luck

Screen falls back


Loose hinges or bad hinges. You can pop off the hinge cover (above the keyboard) and 'try' to tighten the hinges, but if that doesn't work, it's failing hinges and the only fix is to get them replaced mate.
Hope this hellps, be sure to rate!! :)

Loose hinges


Hi,

I met this problem almost all brands of laptops. Depending on how the hinges being built (return spring, embedded lock notch, etc.) Some are easy to adjust and some need more precise tightenings due to wear and tear of the lock notch. However you can buy hinges too at ebay just specify the brand and models as well as the LCD screen part no. replacement. Hope this gives you hint.

Best regards,
Rosener

Cover will not stay opened


It sounds like you need new hinges for your computer. I didn't see any for your particular model on eBay which would be the best place to look but you may be able to contact Toshiba and order replacement hinges. To replace the hinges, you will need to remove the bezel from the LCE screen and possibly the power button board, depending on how your particular laptop is put together.
