    First, the place not to go to... Geek Squad. They are the worst. The worst trained, and they charge the most.

    Computer Repair people tend to be software-oriented. Their hardware experience tends to consist of swapping standard modules (Memory, Power supply, Hard Drive, etc). However, laptops are all different (With the exception of Hard Drives and a few other components). Most computer repair companies will either not work on it, or send it out to a company in California. Some who are new in business may think they can fix it, and get in over their heads. A few companies will have the expertise to do this repair. They will have electronics and soldering experience, and be able to replace the motherboard in your laptop without breaking a sweat. Call around from the phone book, and find a company that can do this for you. I'm not sure where you're located, but here in NJ there were very few companies that could do this.

    Be aware it might be pretty easy to fix, or replace the cracking plastic, but you don't want anyone but an expert opening up a laptop. They are much more complicated than desktops. You'd be surprised how many laptops I got in, either put together poorly, or completely disassembled, as the previous Tech couldn't put it back together properly.

    Prices could range from $60 (Labor only, Tech glues the plastic, and tightens the loose screws under the plastic), to $200 (Expensive labor, Tech replaces the plastic with a new bezel from Acer). If you need a new plastic lid/bezel, the Tech could save you some money by getting a used on on Ebay.
