I was wondering if anyone knows of a procedure to adjust the hinge resistance on a DVI Powerbook. I have looked around on this and other forums. All I found were some vague instructions on Apple's Discussion Boards.

I did a slight modification of my Ti DVI 667 hinges. In fact it was simply a lubrification with teflon based bicycle chain lubricant. I did photos of the hinge with removed covers showing the points where i applied the lubr.. It works: before the mod i had to held down the base unit with one hand while opening the lid with the other hand. Now the weight of the base unit is sufficient to hold it down during opening <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" /> .
