Hey guys, it's been awhile since i've been on here. I thought I would see if anyone over at this forum has any idea of whats going on with my macbook. Well, I have an early version macbook, and when I startup I initially get a backlight, but that goes out. I am left with the faded apple loading, I can see it more clearly with a flashlight. After it starts the loadbar, the mac goes to sleep. If I wake it up, it will continue to load for another 15 seconds or so, and then goto sleep. I can eventually get it into the desktop, but I can't really do anything because of the little lag after waking up, and then at the end of the cycle, when its going to sleep. So I have about 5 good seconds to do something on the screen. Again, this is all with no backlight! The external monitor works fine, and I have reset the PRAM and the power management many times. I am about to part the laptop out if I can't get it fixed soon. Please help!
