door issues

I recently installed a new pre-hung exterior door and I have noticed that the top does not close flush and i have to push in on the top to use the deadbolt. What can i do to fix this problem. Please Help

buschman94, Welcome to the DIY Forums.
I moved your post since it was in Computers (?). I am sure you will get a better answer here. Good luck.

If the door is not closing at the top, that means the door is not plumb. Place a level vertically on the latch side and check it out. You will probably have to kick out the bottom a little on that side. Don't move the hinges. A computer set them in place and they should not need moving.
