Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Squeaky hinge I have a Dell XPS M1530 that has a right squeaky hinge. I cannot hear the squeak when i open it. I can only hear it when it is on an uneven surface, such as a bed, and it moves. I dont want to send it to Dell, and I really dont want to take it apart. I'm not sure where the squeak is coming from. (besides the hinge)


Answers :

The Squeak could be from the plastic that surrounds the LCD wires and while moving or typing cause friction and thats when you hear it. Also it could be the hinge screws inside the LCD screen are loose and it causes that noise also. Tell you the truth I would get that taken care of now before the screen gets all loose and doesnt stay up as you open and close it day by day. You have 1 year warranty might as well take care of this issue from the start it will only get worse. I would not open up the laptop if you dont know what you are doing because you need special tools not to damage the lcd housing and or connection/ wires and could damage your computer. Hope my answer gets you closer to a solution.
