How do you find the logic board# pertaining to a specific iMac?

I have an iMac 17" Intel core duo. MA199LL/A, Model A1173 EMC: 2104. Serial ends in U2N.

I after much research in the symptoms before this computer died, I have come to the conclusion that the graphics has burnt out.

I believe that I should replace the logic board to get this computer back up and running but I noticed that there are a lot of different logic board numbers out there and I don't know which one pertains to mine. e.g. 820-1919-A, 661-3877 or 820-2052-A 661-4291

how do I go about finding that out or does that even matter?

Yes, that looks right to me. How do I go about getting a service manual? or is there no way something like that is available to the general public?

silentdrkangel, First off I do have to admit that I am not a Mac person, just a general hardware person, so take my answer with a grain of salt :-) According to your serial number, your computer uses a 1.83Ghz processor. The part number in the service manual list your logic board as 661-3877 which is also 820-1919-A, and is for the early 2006 iMac. Late 2006 iMac used the Logic Board 661-4105, 2.0 GHz 661-4106, 2.16 GHz 661-4290, 2.0 GHz 661-4291, 2.16 GHz. This is due to the Intel Core Duo processor speed ( ICD = Intel Core Duo, 32-bit processor, 820-1919-A, 661-3877 Logic Boards. Memory is 2Gb RAM maximum) and an increase in Ram Intel Core 2 Duo (- IC2D = Intel Core 2 Duo, 64-Bit processor, 820-2052, 661-4291 Logic Boards. Memory is 4Gb RAM maximum). Hope this helps, good luck

This is great! Thank you, helps me know which one to buy.

The service manual your referring to would have come with my iMac? I assume in disc format? or are you referring to a manual that's available from ifixit.com?
