Thanks for the answer man, after a lot of digging around and comparing cables, I soldered the loose cables to a new connector, but the screen still doesn't work. The macbook starts up with the Chime, but the fans are at full speed. The screen goes from a dark-green ish non-powered colour, to a black colour. Shining a flashlight at the screen showed nothing.
 
What could be wrong? Is it worth it to buy a new inverter cable? Or iscould the logic board be bad?


By the way,
