is it normal for the laptop hinges to creak when opening the laptop?

#1
I'm a fairly knowledgeable with pc's but the two hinges that hold the screen, when opening the screen make a creaking or crackle sound? The laptop is not a year old yet, HP. Also when closing the screen, has if its rusty or something.
LOL

It's probably not a problem. Just friction in the joints.

Probably just crappy hinges. Nothing that alarming.

...modes and scales are still useless.

prolly just a case of stiff hinges creating noisy friction. WD-40 that **** and you'll be all good

my friends mom's does after she spilled a bit of coffee on it.... i just got this new laptop under a month ago,and no i think its normal for laptops to creak when you open/close the screen. i'd say as long as the system still works well, you should be ok

About as normal as a door doing the same thing.

Oh, and apparently we have to add "Laptops suck" now to the pet peeves of UGer's. It shall join the ranks among others such as "Line 6 Spiders suck" etc.

I have a Laptop and I love it way more than a Desktop because I can move it easily.

Meh, some people like the ability to "compute on the go"


Edit: Would WD-40 work? my towel rack had a squeaky bar, put that stuff on and now its silent.

DOUBLE EDIT: according to a couple posts up, dont do this.
