laptop hardware

By Snuffy09 ·
Dell XPS M140

laptop is a hand-me-down from sister-in-law.

needs a few upgrades but its a good little laptop for the living room, anyways...

The only real problem i have is that there is a lot of play in the lid/screen.

You can freely flip the screen back and forth about an inch no matter what the position you have the screen in.

I dont see any logical way to tighten the lid... anybody have any ideas?

thank you

When this happens

by OH Smeg In reply to laptop hardware

You need to replace the Hinges. I haven't seen Hinge issues for several years as they used to break a lot many years ago, but recently I have seen a couple of different model NB's that are starting to experience these issues again.

where the screen hinges with the base, there will be removable plastic covers. underneath these covers there will be screw, which can be tightened

I took the cover panel off and checked the hinge screws, they were already tight.

So i guess i am going to order new ones.
