No video, no audio, but lights and sound
I have been using my macbook for about 3 years. No problems. One time the LCD hinge broke but I fixed that myself after ordering the part...basicall
I say all that to say I am 100% comfortable working inside my macbook.
Having said all of that, my macbook fell off a bedside table onto my bedroom floor... I think the back left corner hit first.
It was on at the time.
Video went dead after that.
Now, when I turn it on, you hear all the gears moving, but where you typically hear the startup tones, you hear nothing.
And, no video.
But the status light stays lit up.
Sorry if this is in the wrong group. Please suggest another one and I will happily move it.
thanks in advance
Hook it up to an external monitor to check the display package. You can also start it up it Target Mode using another Mac. Start up holding down the "T" key and have it plugged into another mac via a firewire cable. The hard drive icon should appear on the other mac and you can run disk utilities on it.
