Question about Dell Latitude D410 Notebook
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.

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.

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.
