No Boot Unless PRAM Unplugged
I have now tried 2 different logic boards (a Core 2 Duo 1.83 and a 2.0) in a MacBook that I have, and both behave the exact same. They will only boot if I take out the LB, unplug the PRAM battery, wait a few seconds, plug it back in, and then get it all hooked back up. And even then, both of them would only boot once and then never boot again until I repeated the process. I have tried 3 different PRAM batteries with the same results. I am losing my mind trying to find the culprit! When the computer does boot, everything seems to work perfectly, including bluetooth, wireless, charging the battery, etc. Any ideas on what is preventing the boot? By the way, when I say it will not boot, it literally does nothing when I press the power button.
Is this a good question?
