liquid spill, powers on (sort of, sometimes). ram is getting HOT
i picked up the aforementioned macbook on the cheap.
it was just beeping on account of ram, but after scrubbing everything down with alcohol and replacing the ram, i'm getting no satisfaction.
the magsafe and led behave normally.
the macbook powers on the second i connect the magsafe, and it'll do that several times. if i have ram installed, the fan will spin up normally, then go crazy, and there's no video or chime.
after several power cycles, it won't turn on. it's sitting there (off) charging, and the ram is getting SUPER hot.
this thing is probably good for parts, but does anybody have any ideas?
Is this a good question?
