    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.

    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.
