Yes, yes, that is the correct way to fix it (I have done many myself)...
the "whack it" comment was a tongue in cheek remark, since at one point,
that was actually an apple authorized temporary fix (until you got tired
of it enough to bring it into a service shop and have the joint
resoldered... since back in that day, you were supposed to open your own
mac... although I ignored that starting with my 128k). At one point, I
even found a tech note about doing it, although, they refered to it as
"tapping forcefully".
