Laptop fell apart- How to repair?

My laptop's casing around the screen and base of the laptop is starting to come apart. I am wondering if there is any easy way to fix it- besides duct-taping the entire thing- which is probably a bad idea!

Here are some pictures of the current issue.

Part of the piece in the back that helps the laptop close/open has broken off.

I am also unable to close the laptop.

@solarixsy , Solarisxsy , That really is in rough shape. I think your best bet would be to try and find a good used parts machine on Ebay, Amazon,Craig list, etc., and transferring parts to fix. Duct tape is not a perfect idea, looks like some one already was doing this and it might hold it together until you find replacement parts. Find below a couple disassembly guides that may help when you get some replacement parts. Good luck.

I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.
