IBM Laptop Screen hinges becoming loose

My IBM T42 laptop screen hinges (don't know the correct term) are becoming
What I mean is that the screen is loose while opening and closing the laptop
and it has to be in a certain spot so the screen won't accidentally close.

Is there anything I can do?

Sure. You can tighten the nuts that are there for
that particular purpose.
I general terms what you need to do is to remove
the keyboard to get to those nuts.

That in turn means removing Hard Drive, DVD and some
screws from the bottom side of the TP.
Here is the hardware maintenance manual, where
you can read about it, and see drawings etc.

It is not that difficult at all, but you need some basic
tools, good lighting and at least an hour of peace
and quiet. I usually find that I also want to do a  bit
of dusting (dust buster), when I have the machine open.
