    Out of warranty, no applecare. Macbook was one of the original Intel whitebooks.

    Problem - won't boot, nothing on the screen. Interchanged hard-drive with my friends MacBook Pro and still no luck. Does not even 'chime' when booted.

    Solution - Maybe logic board is fried? Could I sell for spare parts? Hard to say, how much would a new logic board cost if fixed by Apple? Is it worth it? I've already ordered a MBP but seems a waste just throwing it all in the bin...

    Any ideas appreciated.

    In the land of no hills and red dirt.
    Try the genius bar before you dismantle it or sell it. Will it boot from a cd/DVD? If so, try the apple hardware test.

    And, IMO, it would not be worth the money to install a new logicboard.
