Most likely the hinges are shot, some are even springloaded or counter balanced. You could try to locate a new set of hinges for your particular model but you might also want to check the plastic around the hinges for cracks, if thats the case you be screwed unless you purchase a screen. If your near McKinney I could take a look at it for ya.

No where near McKinney, but I really apreciate the offer. I will check it out. I am holding it up with a knife right now.

Depending on what brand laptop it is, it may have an access panel you can pop off to tighten the screws that go into the hinges. You can also order new hinges from the mfgr.
