    Exclamation There's Loose Change in My Powerbook! Help!
    Somehow some loose change got through the cd drive and I can hear it everytime the laptop moves. What I need to know is, can I open it up myself and take it out and if so can anyone tell me how to do this - or should I take it into a shop?

    if its in the drive, youll have to remove the keyboard, airport card casing, ram and rram slots, logicboard, then the cd drive and manually remove the change.

    Specs:
    i dont have no mac's
    strange things like this need updates mostly for curiosity reasons

    how is everything going with this? i would suggest not putting in any cd's or anything until you get this fixed...precautionary measure really
