Help Needed: How to Loosen or Lube Notebook Hinges on HP Pavilion dv4340us dv4000 Laptop Series to Open and Close More Easily

Hey. I have a laptop where the hinges slowly have gotten ever stiffer until snap went the plastic that holds the brass nuts that hold the beautiful screen to the flimsy HP dv4340us notebook. I've repaired the power supply three times, and had to open the unit up a couple of times to retighten the screws that held the screen and top to the base, and eventually it all gave up and snapped. I tried marine epoxy to repair it, and it went ok considering the damage, but it couldn't hold, mainly because the hinges are so hard to operate.

Let's let Conficker change our lives by taking a fresh look at our computers and ourselves in terms of security. And let's be careful with those cute USB key fob flash drives.

The US Computer Emergency Readiness Team has this advice on Conficker...3 things to do, basically, 1 you are possibly already doing...
