    not too sure

    thanks for the reply. I'm not computer savvy at all. sorry. I'm not familiar with your terminology. I just had the computer "wiped clean" from a previous user and the screen replaced...I probably need to take it back in to have somebody look at it. :(

    Do you have the Mac OS X disc? It comes in the box. It is a gray disc. When you start your computer go ahead and slip it in. And follow the on screen directions.
