Help: Compaq Presario 'stuck' battery!

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

a helpful kid rammed the battery pack the wrong way around (the contacts
facing downwards) into a working presario 1214 SR that i own.
the battery pack is well jammed.
any ideas as to removing it?
there seem to be screws on the base of the unit.
are there any instructions/schematics for disassembling the unit that anyone
knows of?
