    After my iBook's logic board was changed, I noticed that I cannot see the serial number of it anymore? Is there a way to restore it or another way to prove it is still mine? Is there are way to put it in myself or is that a firmware operation? It's kind of relevant since I just bought AppleCare and it would be horrible if I cannot prove that it's actually my comp...

    The serial number stamped on the case is the important one, and this is common when they replace logic boards. You're fine.

    Instructions for getting to the serial number plate, if you need to do that in the future.

    When you get a logic board replacement the serial number in Apple System Profiler etc will not display because it is tied to the logic board. This has been the case for many many years and is not out of the ordinary.

    The serial number should still exist physically on the computer under where the battery goes.

    Hope this helps.
