Boot Up Problem - Black Screen
A few months ago I took apart my Mac and replaced the HD with a SSD drive. Worked great until a couple of days ago.
Unfortunately I used adhesive tape for the LCD that wasn't strong enough. The display came undone a bit and yanked the display cable out of the logic board while the computer was on.
Now when I tried to reboot, I hear the chime, the fan goes on at a very high speed, but the LCD is completely black.
I fear I may have fried the logic board or LCD cable. There is no visible damage to the LCD cable.
Tried SMC and PRAM resets (didn't work). My next step is to try using it with an external monitor....
Any ideas ?
See attached photos.
Is this a good question?
