iBook CR -Rom drive
i received a white iBook G3 500. the problem is the cd-rom drive is broken. it won't close. it will read a cd if i hold it closed but something with the latch mechanism isn't right. the person who i got it from said he ejected the cd and then it just wouldn't close. has anybody had a problem like this, any suggestions? it would be greatly appreciated it.
also, two of the keys are popped off of the keyboard. what is the easiest (if there is) a way to reattach them?
sending the ibook in for repair or ordering hardware isn't really an option in eaither case.
thanks in advance for anybody who replies.

Re: iBook CR -Rom drive
As for the keys, you can finagle them back onto the keyboard, although I'm not sure how to describe how to do it...
