Hey there. So i have a macbook that is about 4 years old. The ethernet and power slots took a bit of a beating about 2 years ago when the laptop got dropped. The ethernet no longer works and the battery no longer charges. 1 of the pins looks a little squished. Anyhow the computer has always worked. Its just been a minor hassle. Anyhow, today i tripped up over the cable. So the computer turns off. I think there was a spark when i reconnected it. Anyhow there is no longer any power. The thing you connect it to seems a little loose, but I think it has always been so. Is there a way to fix this or is it time to retore the computer? If it is time to retire the computer, how could I connect the internal harddrive (once removed) to a new computer. Thanks for your help. One of the five prongs that the magsafe connects too now is black. I dont think it was like that before. Sent from an ipad, sorry about the spelling.
