Why is airport and soundcard not working?


At first my airport hardware wasn´t working. (Hardware couldn´t be found.) After that my screen would remain black when turning the the MBP on, unless i pressed (apple+alt+r+p).The same problme occurs when in sleep mode for a long time. Now I have the same problem with my soundcard.

It seems that my MBP is slowly falling apart:-(

It is one of the first Generation but I would appreciate if you tell me how to save it? Or at least if it is worth repairing it?

Thank very much,

Hi, Before writing off your computer lets try a few things. First you should boot into your operating system disk but don't install. Select utilities/disk repair and run disk repair until it reports no trouble found. Then reset SMC and PRAM and see if you have improvement in the way your MBP works. Ralph
