If it wasn't needed it wouldn't be there. The laptop may still operate or it may not. Without a picture your description is not clear to me. At this point to ad an image use edit - do not create another new question.

If this answer is acceptable please remember to return and mark it.

Those spikes are probably for removing/shielding EMI-interference. Should work with a spike missing.
