Welcome to the Lenovo Community Fellow Wisconsinite !


Another owner of your model experienced a similar problem with one of the hinges being too tight.  He / She found there was a small nut on the hinge that could be loosen so that the hinge moved more freely.  Please see message number 89 in this forum discussion for additional information......




For your reference I have included a link below to your model's Hardware Maintenance Manual.  Please follow all precautions when working inside your laptop.
