Is my hard disk damaged?
I accidentally dropped something heavy on my 15" MacBook Pro, and the metal recharger plates on the bottom created a small dent in the metal case, located roughly 2 inches under the left arrow key. Subsequently, the computer was working. However, after I shut down, i have problem to start it up again. I'm always stuck at the white screen with the apple logo. I realized tha the small dent is at the place that my hard disk is located. Is there something wrong with my hard disk? Do I have to get it replaced or it can just be repaired? I really don't want to lose all my stuff in the hard disk. And I got windows installed in my macbook too. If I change a new hard disk, will this affect my windows? My windows is still functioning. And, lastly, can I do the repair myself or I have to bring it to a technician?
Is this a good question?
