How can I make the hinge for the Chromebook tighter?

The Chromebook's hinge is very loose and the screen keeps falling whenever set to an angle greater than around 100 degrees relative to the keyboard surface. Is there any way I can tighten the hinge to prevent this from happening?

Are you tech-savvy enough to open it? Sounds like the screws may need tightened, either on the LCD's side or on the mobo side.

Start with tightening the lower chassis screws to see if the issue goes away, since it’s least invasive. That said, it can also be the screws inside the LCD assembly, but the issue is the procedure to tighten those is more invasive, and you need to be careful to avoid damaging the LCD - and watch for tape around the frame that’s used to secure it inside.

In most cases, I’ve also noticed it’s usually caused by the lower chassis screws, so the invasive option is not always needed. Refer to this guide to get to the screws for the hinges. However, if you continue to have issues then it usually is within the LCD assembly. You will need to work slowly if this is needed

If neither of these help, then the hinges are worn out or the plastic back cover has failed. These Chromebooks often use fatigue prone plastic, even on the education certified models. The only difference between a consumer/business one seems to be the included contract unless it’s a little tougher at most.

@nick that seems to be a battery replacement guide.

It's the closest thing I can find that exposes the bottom hinges without getting too invasive.

There is a way to take off the screen frame but you can take it to a repair man!
