Default broken screen and screen casing

my fiancee dropped my laptop and the hinge on the left side of the screen is broken along with a crack going half way up the side of the screen casing. also there is not a huge black spot on the screen itself. so im looking to get a replacement screen and casing and was wondering where the best place to look and go about this would be. the laptop is an msi gt627. i did a google search and found a couple screens but cannot find the casing. and also i would have no idea how to go about fixing it if i do end up getting the parts. thanks everyone for the help.

Default Re: broken screen and screen casing

Is this still under warranty? If so, call up MSI and request a RMA.

If not, they would sell the screen only. I do not believe they sell the casing. Could just get a dead system from eBay.
