A friend of mine has a Pismo he'd like to salvage (though that's seeming unlikely at the moment). Basically, it seemed like his logic board had been fried (my assumption as well, but someone with a lot more knowledge of G3 era notebooks had diagnosed it that way as well). So he replaced the logic board, tried to boot, and noting happened, at the end of which there was scoring on the lower edge of the hard drive ribbon. Has this happened to anyone, or anyone have experience with this? As far as we can tell, there was no external damage to the processor daughter or the logic board, though I realize that means little... He's resigned to scrapping it and trying to sell it for parts at this point, but I wanted to see if anyone had any ideas.
