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.

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
