My Macbook just dropped from my bed onto its power outlet which was plugged in, and now one of the gold bits at the end is sticking out to the side, and the outlet plug is lit very dimly.

It says no batteries available, but my mac is still running.
Does this mean that it's running on reserve battery, and if it is, how long do I have?

I got the computer for my birthday at the start of October 09, so will the basic warranty cover repairs or anything?
And if not, around how much might I have to pay for any replacements or repairs?

I'd really appreciate if someone could get back to me, as I really need some kind of an answer to calm me down.

Thankyou in advance

Gold bits on which the computer or the power adapter? It sounds like you bent a pin, but from your post it's hard to really tell. I returned an adapter w/ a bent pin a few years ago and got it replaced for free under warranty, but it's a bit of a tricky call whether or not they'll buy it.

I have to point out that as it was a case of user abuse, Apple is NOT under ANY obligation to fix this for free. I wish you luck, but if asked DON'T LIE. Tell them the truth and beg for mercy, and don't complain if they tell you they have to charge you for the repair -- it is, after all, your own fault.
