potentially dead logic board on a Penryn 2.4 MacBook


I've got a black Penryn 2.4 MacBook. It suffered a very minor water spill -- there was no noticeable water inside the case, but some must have touched the magnetic power-in port. The next time I plugged it in the light flashed but it wouldn't power on. Now when I plug it in nothing happens -- doesn't charge, the LED's on the battery don't flash, and it won't power. I tried removing the ram for a few days, nothing. Do you think a logic board replacement would fix it? If I buy one and doesn't fix it, can I return it?

Is this a good question?

since the logicboard is the computer (and the rest is only "cosmetic") - it will work after you changed it - but it's possible that the battery is also dead - and the battery connector too

so looking where the problem could came from would be the best idea

i don't think that buying a logicboard makes any sense - the prices are in a range where you can normally get a good used MacBook
