    I previously had to send my E1405 back to Dell because I thought the hinge was bad, as it turns out they just needed to re seat it, and they tightened it up a bit. Well it seems as though it needs to be re-seated again, but I don't want to have to send it back to them to have this done. Is this something I can easily do myself, or should I send it back to them anyway and ask that they replace the hinge this time since it's the second time it has happened. The screen is still quite tight when opening and closing it, it just has some play in it when it's open, and I don't want to just leave it alone.

    If you open the case (TRY SAYING IT'S A LAPTOP NEXT TIME) you'll void the warranty. Ask them to send out a technician to your house to tighten the hinge, and try to come up with something else for the guy to replace while he's at it -- something that's getting ready to wear out.

    Look on the back of the notebook, there should be a few (4) bolts that hold the LCD, tighten them.
