Laptop Screen Is Very Loose And Wobbly

Problem description:

The laptop screen screen is very loose and wobbly. The screen can stay in the upright position but it doesn’t feel secure.

Possible cause:

1. Screws securing the hinges are loose.
2. One of the screen hinges is broken.

Possible troubleshooting steps and repair solution:

1. Screws securing the screen hinges could be loose. Tightening screws on the  hinges can help to make the screen less wobbly.

Screws securing the screen hinges could be found in the following locations
– On the bottom of the laptop. Search for screws located right under hinges. Usually only one screw secures each hinge on the bottom. Try tightening these screws.

– On the backside of the laptop. Search for screws located right behind the hinges. It’s possible that you have more than one screw securing each hinge. Try tightening these screws.
Here’s an example:

– Under the switch/speaker cover – a piece of plastic located above the keyboard. You can access these screws if you remove the cover.
Here’s an example:

– Inside the display panel. In order to access these screws, it is necessary to remove the screen bezel.
