    Depends upon how it is loose, the hinge mounting could be broken away from the display/lid or from the main part of the case in which case it may end up cheaper to just get a new Notebook/Laptop. Usually if the lid wobbles both hinges' pivots may be the issue but usually one isn't too noticeable.

    As Berton said, it depends it on the exact nature of the problem.
    For plastic parts, or even for stripped out screw holes, a dab of two-part epoxy (i.e., glue) might be called for perhaps?

    If you're not careful of course, the result might look awful!
