Ahhhhh Hellppppp Please!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
hi all, thanks for looking at my thread, basically my problem is:

I had to change a mobo on a friends lappy, all was going well till i put it back together.

Well look at this pic:



And this is what happened when i screwed a screw in... DUH BUT only one problem, the screw was slightly too long (there were about 15 screws left btw) and it attempted to penetrate through the plastic!!!!





Now i dont know what to do any suggestions on how to level it out?

ANY HELP MUCH MUCH APPRECIATED

Slim

BTW: its only about 1-2mm wide but still its not my lappy!

iron it out. Just be careful not to let the iron get too got. You want to reshape it not melt it.

np, but you should probably take it apart again and get all the screws back in. 15 screws left over is a few too many.
