    Charger for MacBook
    My MacBook fell on its corner where the chharger connector goes. Visually, it look ok, but it appears the MagSafe connector does not seat adequately in the receptacle, because the green light does not go on, and it will not charge. Any suggestions?
    Are there any alternative ways, whatsoever, to be able to charge my MacBook?
    Please help.

    Without the MagSafe Charger connecting properly, there is no other way to charge the battery or run the machine from AC. You need to get that repaired.

    thanks. My guess it will run into several hundreds of dollars. Ugh!

    Can't you repair it yourself so that the MagSafe connector makes contact? Just be careful and see if you can bend whatever is preventing the connector from making contact. If you take it to Apple I suspect they'll replace the case and maybe even the connector itself. And yes, it could amount to several hundred dollars.
