You do not need to replace the hinges, however your need to remove the font panels of the screen and laptop to remove the hinges. You will see that the pin that connects the top part of the hinge to the bottom part of the hinges has over time moved out of alignment. With pliers and a hammer manipulate the hinge pin so that it is now flush with the hinge itself. You will see that the hinge will then become tight. Then just reinstall the hinge. I just did this and I know it works.

    Maverick 99 - you are the business. This fixed my screen. Now I need to unlearn my screen holding reflex.

    The bezel is the strip that has the led's underneath it. You can use your fingernail to remove the bezel. and then you will see their is a bar sticking out of your hinge. Once you manually force that bar back in, stiffness returns,.

    If you need to get the hinge off the laptop, to safely manipulate the bar, there are two screws for each hinge. one above and one blow.

SOURCE: loose screen hinges

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.

SOURCE: loose hinge/lid on Dell latitude D410 laptop

I took the hinge cover off to look for myself to see if there were in fact some set screws to tighten the monitor up. None were found, no suprise there. While on ebay ordering a new hinge set I noticed that the picture of the new hinges didn;t look the same as what I observed on the laptop. The pin on the right was sticking out on my lapto but in the picture on ebay it was flush.
I used a flat ended phillips tip screwdriver and pushed the pin back in while gently rocking the monitor back and forth. That seemed to solve the problem.

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.

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.

Monitor lid will not stay in position.


On most models the hinges are a pressed in, pressure brake type hinges, and when the hinge start getting worn to the point of not holding the screen, then they can only be replaced in order to fix it. You can sometimes get away with replacing just one. On some models there are screws on the hinges that come loose that can cause this. The screws aren't for adjusting, they are basically just set screws. You won't know which is the problem until you take the covers off. Most likely you're going to have to replace the hinges. Try Ebay for the replacements.

Lid/Top Loose


I have a Tecra M2 S630 and was able to fix my left hinge by removing it and drilling out the rivet and replacing it with a 6-32x1/4 inch machine screw and a nut. Total cost was $4 for a package of nuts and screws from Radio Shack.
