Dead display with no faint image but working DVI output.
MacBook Pro 15" 2522 Core Duo Model A1150
A while ago, while trying to install Ubuntu, I noticed that my Mac took a long time to start up immediately after installation, and heated up so much that it almost felt scalding. The display slowly dimmed, then went out. I tried shining a flashlight behind the screen to see if it was just the backlight, but I saw no faint image.
The DVI port, however, works great. I can attach an external monitor, but in System Profiler, my mac doesn't even recognized that there is a built in display attached to it.
Does it need a new inverter cable? Monitor? Logic board?
Is this a good question?
