You can't. They're worn out and the way they're manufactured doesn't allow for a easy tightening unfortunately. I would pick up a new / used pair from ebay and then just swap them out.

How do I replace a Toshiba Satellite A45-S120/40 (PSA40U-06FV3V) Hard Drive? I just need the instructions. Thank you very much, Eladio


There should be a panel or two on the bottom... one will cover the memory, the other should cover the hard drive. Open them up to find the hard drive. Remember to unplug and pull the battery out before you begin.

Laptop hinges are loose


The hinges can be loose in two different areas, but the most popular is the hinge attachment point behind the screen bezel. Remove the rubber screw covers from the bezel, remove the screws, take your finger nailas and from the inside of the bezel pull gently to the outside to release the catches on the screen lid. Start on one side and work your way around the screen until the bezel pops loose. Look at the bottom of the screen and you will see the hinge attachment points. Tighten them up. If you have some locktite this would be a good time to apply it, remove the screws one at a time and replace. To replace the bezel, always start at the bottom and work your way up.

A hinge seems to be broken or loose on the laptop screen, how can i fix it


Many laptops have plastic coverings on their hinges. You can can pop these off with a screw driver and sometimes you can reach the screws to tighten the hinges from here. You may be able to tell if the hinge is broken from here as well. Many times, though, the screws holding the hinges in place are located on the bottom and you will have to remove the portion of the case that is covering them. This usually means the entire lower portion of the laptop case to access these screws.
