In a pinch, you can pop the lid open on these by sliding a credit card between the screen and base chassis. Typically when the latch breaks on a tc4200/4400 it will need to be replaced unless it is simply jammed.

The latch is magnetic and if it breaks while closed, it will be stuck closed. To open it, you can slip a business card or something similar between the screen and the keyboard at the corner, just inboard of the rubber bumper and slide it across from left to right (I believe) while exerting a slight upward pressure on the screen and this will open it.
Be sure to replace it as soon as you can to avoid breaking the plastic "Screen Alignment Guide Pins" off. This will happen if the screen is not latched firmly and is allowed to rotate while in the closed position. The guide pins are impossible to get, as they are long discontinued. You would have to replace the entire palm rest to have them back.
right click on the screen at the bottom is properties click that then i think you want settings near the bottom are three buttons the one to the right should be advanced you should be able to change that in there
