Answers :

On my gateway m series it seems over time they got tighter and tighter until i heard creaking when i opened it. i popped off the 2 plastic covers on either side to reveal the actual metal hinges. i put a few drops of spray on SILICON LUBE not wd40 which will definitally effect any plastic it makes contact with, trust me from experience. Then after the oily lube was applied i used a 5.5 mm wrench and loosened both nuts on either side just a turn, maybe less for yours. This allowed the lube to penetrate. Then laastly i applied SILICONE GREASE, both found at home depot. The grease helps maintain the lube that has penetrated the hinge. then re-assemble the covers and presto- saved about 100 bucks on new hinges.
I was advised to remove the pins in the hinge and use emery cloth to reduce the friction, re assemble with a small dab of machine oil or wd40 and should have lossened up. Be carefull not to reduce the pin too much or will be loose.
