My computer is an Acer Aspire Model E5-E21, which was purchased in July 2015. It is a Windows 10 PC.
Around early-November, my computer had developed a crack in the top-right corner of the bottom half, where the charge component is held within the computer. What I didn't know at the time (I'm 14 years old) was that it would prevent me from charging most times. I remember the PC losing some plastic pieces (likely the teeth holding the corner together) from the corner and whatnot, and a few days after the crack started developing, I got quite a few KERNEL_POWER_ERROR crashes. Those are finally gone, though, so it might have been memory.
How can I solve the splitting? I cannot charge my computer while open unless I hold the charge cable at an odd angle, and cannot charge it closed without causing a hassle (putting some pressure on it, using my hands to lift the shell, etc.).

2. The tab on the top left corner of my PC, which looks fine.
3. The tab on the top right corner, which is slightly bent in contrast.
4. A dark image of my computer's top left corner, which is still fine.
