Question about Sony VAIO VGN-UX280P Notebook
It has gotten to the point where if it is a little too far back from vertical, it will just slowly head down. I see some rectangular rubber covers over something at the hinge on both sides and wondering if they cover screws that can be used to adjust. It is a VGN-AX580G
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 which is the problem know until you take the covers off. Most likely you're going to have to replace the hinges. Try Ebay for the replacements.
