    I have a Macbook Pro , Logic board 820-2523-B EMC 2324 and a 3.06 cpu

    One day it just shut down, and then when trying to reboot would just be stuck on the Apple logo

    I tried it without battery in , and with battery in. The light is green on the charger.

    I then decided to change the Heatsink, and now it won't even power on.

    I am wondering if I should change the DC IN Power Jack Board Cable , or what would you recommend I try next?

    Should I just get a new Logic board and CPU? Not sure what I should try.

    Thanks for any help. If you need more info let me know.

    You changed the CPU on a macbook Pro? That would require advanced microsoldering skills, as these CPUs are soldered.
    And no 2009 Macbook pro has a clock speed of 3.06ghz. Are you talking about a Mac Pro?

    Sorry I meant I changed the Heatsink. My bad it was a typo. Thinking one thing, and typing another.

    This was a reconditioned Macbook pro when I bought it. I know it was 2009 as that was stated when I bought it, plus the parts say 2009. It is a Unibody I believe.

    I have pictures of all the parts inside. I just have to transfer them to my pc, if that helps. I could upload them.

    Checking the MacBook warranty with the serial number on the apple website will give you the exact model number.

    I recommend examining the board for any damaged areas.

    It is a MacBook Pro (15-inch, Mid 2009) according to the Apple Warranty website

    I don't see any damage on the Logic Board

    I am just going to buy another Logic board and will report back

    I changed the Logic board and still won't power up

    The light on the charger is always green. Is there supposed to be a light illumination on the Power button?

    I am wondering if its the charger or try changing the DC Power Jack ?

    UPDATE: I managed to get the Macbook to boot up by using the power pads on the logic board

    On mine, I had to use the 5 pin from the left on the keyboard and the ground

    It starts to load and gets about 3/4 of the way and shut down

    So now I am wondering is it the keyboard or perhaps hard drive issue?
