Please help! My laptop's screen hinges just recently became really loose--is this fixable, or am I screwed?

I have a Gateway 200
with a screen that's lost its tightenness. It will stay upright if it's between 80 and 100 degrees, but anything more tilted than that and it'll fall over from the weight of the screen. Can these hinges be tightened somehow? How do I even get access to them? They appear to just be kind of "locked in" to the bottom part of the laptop. How much will this cost, will it just get worse, and any way to prevent it from getting worse?
