    iBook Busted Hinge
    With my head hung low, I confess I dropped my wonderful and well used iBook G4. It was open and on my lap and fell apparently at an angle as the right hinge connection is actually exposed and sticking out like a compound fracture! Aaaagh! It's ugly and I can't close the screen. Any suggestions?!?
    Oh, internally everything seems to be running/working the same as it has been pre-accident.
    Can I undo the casing and essentially push everything back into place?!?

    You might be able to, but before taking it apart check the instructions for doing so at iFixit: The free repair manual. They also sell parts for your iBook. I suspect you may have to replace that bent hinge.
