My sister has the same problem and she has about an inch wobble. It's terrible and unfortunately my 1720 is following this pattern. I've heard there are screws under a plate that can be tightened to stop this.

There is also another situation where the screws will be tight and it's just the monitor and there's nothing you can do. I don't know if your computer is the same is mine but I have a little plate above my keyboard I can lift up and that's where my screws are.

that means that it's the second issue unfortunately, I believe. I'm not an expert but I've had a little experience with Dell laptops and unfortunately I don't think there is anyway to fix it. I hope someone chimes in because it's my biggest fear with my computer too.

If its not the screws then its likely the hinges. If its those then you'd have to order a new set and replace them which in some case means taking apart not only part of the base but very possibly the screen as well.
