Title:

Question about Inverter Cable vs. Inverter Board

Text:

So, I have a problem with my backlight (yay)

I took it into the mac store, and they said that the inverter board was not telling my computer to keep the backlight on continuously (something like that)

Rather than let them fix it for 150 buck, I figured I would let my very handy boyfriend take care of it.

To go into more detail, whenever I start my mac up, the back light comes on for less than a second, and then goes off (and stays off), if I fiddle with the brightness settings, it will sometimes come back on for about one second.

ANYWAYS, should I be buying the cable AND the board, or should I just buy the board? Or just the cable?
