This is on a lap top, correct?
The only thing that I have ever known to cause such a problem is unintentional abuse.
Just what is meant by "coming apart"? Is it falling off at the hinges? Is the frame\lid coming apart?
While it may be to late to salvage the current machine\monitor, shy of a major repair\replacement. One suggestion I will make is to always open the lid by lifting at the center point. Usually where the latch is. On some lap tops that have a latch at either corner then use both hands, one at either corner to lift it.
