    I had an unfortunate spill on my late 2008 macbook and the power button was not responding after i turned my macbook off so i used the hotwire method to turn it back on a few days later and the keyboard does not respond now. Is this the logic board? How much is this repair typically?

    it could also be the keyboard/topcase itself i think, since the power button is on there also. replacing that is considerably less expensive than a new logic board.

    Any money put into an 8 year old laptop, especially one with water damage that may have a myriad of issues, is money down the toilet.

    I'd have to agree with Samuelsan above.

    Time to start shopping for something new, Apple-refurbished, or "late-model used" ...

    Pretty sure apple won't repair a device that old.
