I dropped a sprocket on my macbook last night. It's steel and weighs about a pound or so. Immediately the computer screen went blank and it made the sound it makes when I first turn it on. But it didn't come back on all the way. So I turned it off and back on again and it eventually will come on completely (I'm on it now) but veeery slowly. Takes about 10 minutes to get online from pressing the power button. It also just went blue on me at one point today and I had to turn it off and then on again. I can't get on skype either for some reason.

So what damage was done exactly. Does that sound like a hard drive problem? Or did I break something on the mother board? I just put in a new fan, and I replaced the optical drive last summer, so I'm comfortable enough poking around in there and doing some basic stuff but I don't really know much about what everything is or does.

What do you think? (Other than that I should stop dropping heavy steel things on my computer - got that.)
