Battery is not charging.

My macbook is not charging its battery. last night i opened my macbook up (out of warranty anyways) to repair the hinges (it was ccreaking really loud). DUrign the process of fixing everything i dropped a screw near the magsafe board so i had to take that off (well unscrew it) to get the screw out. I did push the magsafe in under the logic board just a lil bit. not a lot. and might have tugged on a wire when i tried to use needle nose pliers to get the screw out. so yea. i took it to apple store and found out it will cost 300 or 600 bucks to repair (they dont noe the problem) which i believe is way too much for repairs.

In addition, the magsafe charger does not light up but the battery indicator light on the macbook say either Charged or not charged. when i use the macbook on battery, it will drop down to like 95 percent then i charge it and it will say not charged but later, i check it says 100 percent charged. but when i unplug it it might or might not go down.

did i damage the logic board or the magsafe board? or is it some other problem? anyway to fix it inexpensively? i just bought this macbook off of ebay for college and now i effed my life T_T

We have the same problem that the Apple boys did in that we don't know what might have been damaged. You have too many things going wrong. I seldom recommend this but there are times two aspirin or a band-aid will just not do. My best advice to you is to take it to a professional. Don't take it to Apple as they have corporate expenses to cover. Find some guys in a little store that's been doing this for a long time. Get a recommendation from another Apple user if possible.
