    I also have a loose laptop hinge. It seems like one side was completely gone, but the other side use to support it okay until today. Now both hinges have given up and the screen flops in the breeze. It is a HP Pavilion zv5000. Any and all help is greatly appreciated

Those screens tend to lose their tightness as time goes on from all the opening and closing. Regrettably, there isn't much to be done with them except replacement of the part. You can jury rig it but that's about it. I,too, had a zv5000 and experienced the same thing.
Please don't hold my bad news against me when you rate my answer! ;-)

My acer is not coming on ,there is power going into my lap top but the screen is completly blank?

Bring your laptop under sunlight. If you look very closely and can see your screen then your backlight went out. Otherwise there might be a loose/broken connection to your lcd.

When I open my lap top, My screen goes hay wire and I have to open and close the screen until I find a position that it stops.

The problem is most likely the video cable from the motherboard to the LCD screen has become loose and needs to be reseated back in place. It will need somebody to do a partial dis-assembly to fix the issue or a computer technician.

The power cord will not stay plugged into my computer. Unfortunately this is the 3rd time it has happened. The previous two times it was under warranty. The cord was replaced and that worked for a...

If it is that loose it is worn out in the case on the mother board now this is a simple replacement of a little plastic adapter. They are relatively inexpensive but the repair is not. It is complete removal of parts from the lap top to get to this part. If not done correctly your lap top will suffer serious issues and may have to have the whole board replaced. I strongly advise that you take this in to a repair shop or make it work by gently take a pair of pliers "Needle Nose" and gently squeeze the tip I mean gently so as to not break the wiring seal or anything else. Do it just enough to stay on the pin on your lap top.
Take this in if you can afford it and get it done properly is my first option. You are responsible for it if you go with that suggestion of a gentle squeeze not much very gentle and once until it stays in that is all. This is what I would do first it is cheaper to replace another cord than a board repair. John

My lenovo lap top screen stays black even if the computer is on..

hi msinon, connect another external screen to the IBM-machine to check if simply the screen is broken.
If that does not help, remove the RAM-memory module (see instructions or manual), retry booting up without it, if still not lucky, the mainboard is broken and you will have to exchange it or get another new machine.
Think of transferring the old harddisk to the new laptop or keeping it as an external back-up source(you will have to buy an USB to SATA adaptor plus harddisk case) sa you can use it like a flash drive...

good luck
