Yes. Strip down the laptop and screen. The hinges will be exposed and they can be tightened up. Use care because if too tight, they will break the plastic case.

Loose hinges and screen trim comin off


screen trim should be able to be pressed together from front to back, loose hinges is caused by the screws at the hinges. you can pop the trim all the way off normally either by unscrewing the screws or in the case of most hp netbooks by simply applying some pressure between the 2 halves of the screen casing. i'd remove the front half and tighten the screws and then pop everything back together.

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 problem with the hp pavillion zv6000 notebook pc


Sometimes intemittant video can be caused by a couple differnet things on a portable system.

1. Bad ground. Some LCD are grounded to the chassis through the hinges. If the screws for the hinges become loose, the ground becomes intermittant. So tighten any screws for the LCD hinges.

2. Sometimes the LCD video cable connection to the video card becomes loose from heat expansion. So see if you can find the service manual on the HP web site, and see how to reseat the video cable (should be listed under the LCD install/removal)

3. If neither of those resolve, then you may have a problem with the LCD itself or the cable that goes to the video card as hte cable goes thru the hinge assembly.
