Help! I dropped my 4 week old baby. My 15" Powerbook was pulled off my desk and hit the floor. It landed on the tip of the left lower base. It has a crimped-in left outer edge. The small lateral edge screw held. The top flat portion is also crimped-in leaving a 2-3 millimeter gap along the front outer edge. Mercifully, the screen does shut and lock into position. Are there any links to a set of instructions on how to disassemble the laptop? Is crimping out the aluminum something a knowledgeable lay-person should undertake? What components are in the left corner? Should I pay through the nose and let some emotionally unattached technician attempt this feat perhaps not doing an adequate job?

Thank you kindly for your response to my request. There are excellent graphics to follow. The irony is not lost that the french word for disassemble contains the english word 'demon'. Devilish problem to take apart a Powerbook.
