View Full Version : Alpb15 Creaking/cracking Hinge

I don't know how many people have this problem with their PB's but mine was driving me crazy. Every time I moved the screen after opening the lid it was accompanied with a loud creak or crack. :angry:
It was fine if I opened the lid in a fluid motion, but after that any movement was scary. :ph34r:

After a bit of research, I found out possible solution; to loosen the four screws (2 to 3 turns) at the back of the case next to the hinges and then to move the screen back and forth a coulpe of times. Then tightened up the screws again, Wadda yah know, fixed.
Sure cheaper than new hinges. :D

Worth a try if you are in this uncomfortable predicament.
