I'll be honest with you, I'm not a Mac person because I never really owned one, but my husband has been for the last few years. Here's what happened: In 2008 he bought his first MacBook which lasted up until this year. The truth is that mac never gave him any problems, until one day he was really angry and threw the poor thing against the wall. We replaced the screen and the computer continued to work. Now I don't know if he was looking for an excuse to buy a new MacBook (now he has the Pro) but punched the old '08 MacBook and broke it. There is a dent on the right side of the keyboard, right on the area above the CD-ROM. This was a few months ago and right now I decided that I may give it a try to fix it myself. The hard drive must be dead because when it powers up it gives the gray screen with a folder and a question mark. The dent on the keyboard makes it hard for you to insert a CD, I tried and it got stuck I had to pull it out with a plastic paper clip. Sorry for making this so long, but I'm just looking for guidance and advice. Do you think this MacBook can still be repaired? Perhaps you can help me out with a few tips. I know changing the hard drive should be easy (I replaced his screen when he first broke it, and I believe that's harder than replacing the hard drive), but I'm not sure about the CD-ROM. Thanks for your time.
