    Hello to all,

    I have a 7 yr old Sony Vaio GR370 laptop with a loose hinge. When
    the laptop is open at any viewable angle, there is about 1-1.5in.
    of "play" on the LCD portion of the lid. It stays up fine - it's more of an
    annoyance then anything else.

    Is there any way to tighten/repair/replace the hinges ?

    thanks in advance !

    I'm just guessing, but I think you're missing a retaining screw that holds the hinge post in place.
    Look at the back of the machine to see if there is a place for a screw that is missing.

    You sir, are awesome ! Actually there were (2) screws hidden under
    some minuscule covers. I pried them off, tightened them up a bit & it
    was as good as new !

    Thank You once again !
