    This is a button of some sorts on the logic board mid 2010 macbook pro 13 by the fan. What is it for? The reason I asked is because I found it severed from the board. What kinda problems will the board have as a result. I couldn't find any info on it on the internet.

    Hmm, Dropbox does not seem to work for you. Or me with the direct link of that image.

    Spring loaded grounding contacts that connect to the rear casing.

    I think that is what it is meant to be like.
    It's a spring loaded contact/pin.
