You're wanting to tighten the hinges for the screen. Either tighten them so the screen will stay in the position you set it at, or tighten the hinges from being loose in the body of the laptop.

The link below takes you to HP.com/Support,>Manuals, and the download page for the Maintenance and Service Guide.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/manualCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=444477&lang=en&

Don't let the name 'Guide' fool you. This is an extensive service manual! It is a free download from HP.com
This is a PDF file. Your computer has Adobe Reader on it. It uses PDF files.

On the page link above, go down to -> HP Pavilion ze2000 Notebook PC, Compaq Presario M2000 Notebook PC - Maintenance and Service Guide <- in blue, and click on it. (Either one. I would click on the one that is 4.75MB in size)

After you click on it, you may not see anything happening. It's downloading. You may not see anything for 30 seconds or more.
Sometimes after about 10 seconds, the first page pops up. It's still downloading though!
Let it FULLY download before you start looking through it. If you don't, you could break the download connection.

Should you wish to save a copy, of this service manual to your computer, (So you can look at it anytime you want, or burn it off to CD disk), go up to the headings at the top.
Click on the second icon from the left. It's a Floppy disk icon.
Hovering your mouse cursor over it, will briefly reveal,
"Click to save this file to your computer or another location".

Unless you have your computer set to download to your My Documents folder, this file will be saved to your desktop screen.
It will be a yellow folder with -> c00637377.pdf <- under it.
Just double-click on it to view.
(I downloaded it just now, and it took 28 seconds to come up. I have a medium speed DSL connection)

Page 129 starts with dealing with the Display. (LCD screen and hinges)

If you get time, I would appreciate it if you would rate this solution.

I have a dell XPS M1330 and its screen is loose. For e.g. if I am in a car / bus using my laptop, the screen tends to fall backward or forward. How can I tighten the screen?


I would try to look around the screen and see if there is any screws to tighten. Just try a few screwdrivers, and gently tighten the screws, with ought pulling to hard. If they are too tight, the laptop won't close. Don't be too invasive, if you have to take anything beyond the battery case off, you can screw up and destroy you hard-earned laptop.
Hope this helps!

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.

Sony VGN AR630


If the lid has a small slack and then is firmer again when the lid/screen is in another position, then the hinge mounting screws is most likely loose and the mounting screws needs to be tighten.
If the hinges are loose no matter what the position of the lid/screen is in then, they need to be replaced, there is no adjustment to tighten the hinges.

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 hinge too loose


a the base of the screen you may see some scews that cover access panels, open them up and you can tighten the little nut that tensions the hinge. I had a laptop that was shaky and I tightened the hinges and it was OK after that.
