Hi, I just found a Macbook Pro at a tagsale (yikes) for $100. It looked like it had been dropped once or twice, and it needed a cleaning badly. So i figured, its $100... why not just buy it... its a Macbook Pro for godsakes. So i brought it home, cleaned every part of the casing, every single key, and charged up the battery with a macbook charger.... (I hope thats okay... because i left my other charger at work) Now, I figured out pretty quickly "why" the machine might be broken.... First of all... there was enough dust on the inside of the case to open up a (feather-free) pillow factory. But second, I noticed that when I turned the computer on... it just sat with the fans spinning. Only half of the computer was getting power. (I press the caps lock key on the logic board, and no light turns on) I can hear the hard drive spinning, but the screen is not on. So now im thinking it is definitely a logic board problem. I opened the machine completely, checking under the logic board to see if anything is loose or disconnected. Nope... but what I did notice, is that when I took the bottom piece of RAM out of the computer, (the one closest to you when you open up the ram door), the computer turned on and ran! Now - Everybody knows about this recall for Powerbooks, but, since this computer is not under applecare... does it apply for my MBP?
