Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
When I am using my laptop the monitor will not hold a position.
It is loose and falls back without something to prop it against.
Is there a way to adjust it to tighten the top so it will hold 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.
