Airport Card not found, No USB power left side...
Recently was given a broken MBP A1226. Took laptop apart covered MB w/aluminum foil and heated the graphics card and now am able to use the computer. Purchased a brand new 85w power cable/cord, installed a brand new airport card, and 2x 2GB SDDR RAM upgrades.
I have performed the following: (With old RAM and new RAM)
-Rechecked all connections
-Tried to add a new network connection
-Deleted and re-installed OS X
-Booted from CD
-Reset PRAM and SMC
-Unable to find under -listallnetworkhardware
-Repair disk/Verify disk
On a side note... took the battery into BatteryPlus and they said that the battery was running hot, a regulator had gone bad. I also have no function on the left USB. Power cable light comes on when plugged in, mic and headphone jacks work.
Is it possible that my left I/O magboard gone/going bad and would cause the battery problem, usb, and airport card to not function? Or am I looking at a couple separate problems?
Thanks again in advance.
Is this a good question?
