Hi there 6 months ago I spilled a whole cup of hot chocolate on my 15 inch Macbook Pro, and yes I freaked out and everything but I'll save you that story. It still booted, I heard the famous sound, but the screen remained black and at a local Apple store they said repairing it would cost more than a new Macbook Pro, so I bought a new one. They weren't sure wherether the screen broke or the connection, or some cards inside (note how I say "some cards inside", talking about this does not belong to my comfort zone ). A week a go, a guy who had to check my MBP to see if the insurance would pay it back, told us the screen was still ok. So i started thinking. After the chocolate thingie it still booted, screen appears to be working too, wouldn't it be cool to get this thing fixed? I asked my boyfriend and we kind of made it our Easter Holidays mission. Now, of course there are a few problems and things we don't know about. I'll just... make a quick list 1. what product would be the best to clean the inside parts? 2. i've been using the HD as an external HD for all these months now, would it be enough to make a SuperDuper copy of the HD in my new Macbook Pro (it's exactly the same one) and just put the HD back in? 3. is it possible to connect an external screen without an OS or being able to see anything on the Macbook screen itself? That's probably enough for now. I keep this thread updated if people are interested. I'll also post some pictures of the Macbook Pro in its current state if you want to.
