Title:

A logic board, 2 inverters and 2 LCDs later... still no worky

Text:

First, the original monitor had occaisonal problems, fixed sometimes fiddling with the screen on the hinges. Then, the logic board died, on account of the video card, replaced free by Apple.

It worked fine for a few hours, then the screen died having colors flow over the screen (while the external output works) and I bought and changed the inverter, same issue.

Then bought new LCD, it was totally white, thought it was DOA. But now the seller has sent me another, with same problem. Once the OS loads I am able to adjust the brightness fine, but can't see anything. I was thinking that the only thing left would be the data cable, does that make any sense? I'd appreciate your input.

I've been waiting to fix this computer for about two months!! arrgg.
