My dell inspiron 4000 screen won't quite stay upright. After too many
openings and closings, I get the feeling it's become a bit loose. Unless
it's within about 5 degrees of 90, the weight of the screen will flop it
open to 180 degrees.
I deinstalled the screen and took a look at the hinge pin to see if there
was a screw I could tighten but I see nothing of the sort. Perhaps there is
some "anti-lubricant" I can treat the hinge pin with to hinder it's
motion... add a bit of friction?
I see the end of the hinge pin is secured by a e-type washer. perhaps if I
could add a thicker washer there to increase the compression fit (and thus
add friction) to the joint, it would tighten up the clamshell motion.
Anybody have any ideas? experience? input?
