    Lightbulb Macbook Pro Loose Screen Issue
    Well i have a 2006 model Macbook Pro 15" 2.0ghz and the screen has become loose overtime.

    So when i open it, it flops back about 3 cm and its starting to get really annoying. Is there anyway to repair this issue? I have had my macbook pro in pieces a fair amount and i couldn't see anyway to tighten the screen

    Another issue i'm having is when i press the open lid button the screen does not pop up like it used to, it just sits flat and its getting harder to open.

    Thanks

    It could simply be the 3 torx display fixing screws on each side become loose. The top case needs removing to view. If it is and you tighten the screws, don't over tighten as they can shear off.
