Re: laptop outer shell

It is almost impossible to permanetly glue the plastic (usually ABS) used in the computer exterior casing.  What model is it?

Re: laptop outer shell

You should be able to find the parts here:

Note that if the crack is around the hinge assembly, it's likely that is worn and should be replaced, or the new plastic part will simply crack in the same spot.

Re: laptop outer shell

I used to have a D610, and I replaced the base with one I got from Ebay. It requires complete disassembly of the notebook, which isn't too terribly difficult to do.
