As stated: our Mac won't turn on other than the white light on the bottom right.

Read through the support page which suggests taking the back off ( and use internal power switch) as in owners manual section 4, however it's not in there.  At the bottom there is a couple of screws and a couple of star head screws, I'm guessing I need to undo these and possibly pull from the bottom.  Don't want to break it,
