The LCD is pressure contacted with the circuit board. The "hooks" might have got tired and loose. They are on the metal frame around the glass and hold onto the board like claws. It is possible to bend them tight again. I've done it. Even to replace a cracked LCD glass with one I happened to have two of, although that was not on a laptop. Be supervised by an electronic technician if you can, for a better chance of success. Avoid breaking the glass. Good luck. It's a PITA to disassemble laptops without making them worse. There is a fragile ribbon cable in the hinge. Screws are sometimes under rubber pads or stickers. Case unsnaps/snaps IF all the screws are out, but not always nicely. The back-light may also be a fragile CCFL like what's in scanners, and it zaps you if it's on and you touch it's inverter circuit.
