    A1181 Intel Core Duo Macbook 2006.

    I have the above mentioned Macbook that was working fine. Over the weekend, I had it completely powered down and sitting on my bench. On Monday, I switched out the ram and hard drive, and hit the power button to boot it but it wouldn't respond. I've tried resetting the battery, etc... but the result is a dead Macbook. The 60 watt charger, while plugged in shows a very light green. It used to be really bright. Another thing I've tried is jumping the two pwr button pads near the fan on the logic board. Still won't turn on. If jumping the power button pads doesn't power it on, does that mean the logic board is dead? I have the MagSafe port on order to see if that will do the trick.

    It sounds like the RAM isn't set properly or bad itself. Just my opinion.

    Put the original stuff back in. Test. If it works, then replace just the ram. Test. If it works, replace just the drive. Test.

    Cause of the problem will depend on which test, if any, fails.

    All was put back in the way it was and it still won't power up. Probably a dead board but I have no idea why it would suddenly die after working only a few days before.

    press the (left side) Shift-Control-Option keys and the power button at the same time.

    Release at the same time then hit the power button.
