    Well, after a week and a few days, my macbook pro is back in my hands. I'm the OP for "Is My Logic Board fried?".

    When I booted it up for the first time, it loaded rather slow and took longer than usual to boot up. So I rebooted it to see what it'd do, and oddly enough, it did it again.

    When I started to use it, I noticed how slow it was moving. Now, let me preface this by saying that it was NOT my logic board that fried. My LCD screen died. I figured it was my logic board though because when I plugged it up to an external screen ... it didn't work. But anyway, I have a new screen now.

    When I originally thought it was my logic board, I did some PRAM resets, power configuration resets, NVRAM resets, the works. So I know I've screwed up and played around with a ton of settings.

    I have a time machine backup of the entire harddrive from the weekend before my macbook pro died. Should I just take my harddrive back to that date? Or should I just go through and play with settings. If the time machine back up turns incomplete ... what will happen to my files?
