    Every time I get in an argument with that Norwegian black magician, something on one of my computers breaks. This time, it was the backlight for my iBook :-( Ban him! Ban him now! :mad:

    Last time it was my iBook's logic board, because he had made some snippy comment that caused my adaptor to **** itself.

    This wasn't common knowledge?

    Seriously, though.

    I have a question for the knowledgeable and quasi-knowledgeable out there.

    I think it's the backlight, but is it possible for the entire display to go bad at once? Is this more or less common? I'm broke as a broke mother****er and I really can't buy a new display for this beast after having dropped money for a new power adaptor and logic board so recently. I can swing some cash for a backlight, maybe (although no more than $40 or so, and even that makes my heart jump), but I can't throw it away on a machine with a completley bad display.

    I've held it up to several bright lights and cannot see the dim shapes that I could in the past when turning the backlight all the way down.

    What is it? Is the machine destined to be an SSH server for the forseeable future? Or does punching F1 not really turn the backlight off, just really down? What are my chances? Does this mean the logic board is b0rked again?
