    dropped macbook - cannot move
    My cat knocked my macbook off my desk. I cannot move or shut it without the macbook shutting off and beeping until I remove the battery (which I have to do with a screwdriver since the fall broke the twist-lock button off).

    Whenever I remove and replace the battery, I can turn the macbook on and use it like normal, but if I shut it or move it at all, it'll shut down and beep all over again.

    Did I damage that thing that senses falls and protects the HD or whatever? Is this something I can fix and/or replace on my own, so I need a professional, or do I need a new laptop?

    My model is a 2007 white macbook, from what I can gather. My friend gave me this macbook when he bought a Pro.

    Hope you can get it fixed.
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .
