Question about Apple Computers & Internet
My friend's Macbook A1181 won't boot. When I turn it on, I hear 2 clicks from the hard drive and the screen flashes once very briefly. Hard drive keeps on spinning without making any further sounds and the screen stays blank. I plugged in a new unformatted HD; same result except no clicks from the new HD, but the screen stays blank. I tested Ram with my other laptop, the memory is good. Any suggestions?
Here the same problem now.when powerbutton is pressed I hear de boot sound and only a blank screen is what you get

This is possibly a backlight issue, especially if the fan and or hard drive are spinning. Take a flashlight and shine it at the screen and see if there is a faint image. If so then it is your baclight which may mean the cable or inverter board. Parts are available on eBay but this requires a fairly involvec strip down including taking apart the screen. The other fix is to buy a tested working used screen but make sure you know the exact model number as cables did change through production. This repair is still fairly involved so might be beyond some folks confort level.
