Logic board, heat sink, GPU, or simple issue?
My MacBook won't charge a new battery, and won't make it past the loading startup screen once I log on, without a battery.
I recently needed to replace the battery and have tried 3. I started without a battery once, accidentally (didn't connect it) and it worked. I'm guessing it's the logic board.
Could it be anything else?
I replaced the MagSafe charger but not the internal connection to the logic board. Because it gives a green light and begins turning on, I figured that part was fine.
My question is do you think it's the logic board? The book has been running hot so the heat sink could have caused damage but I couldn't tell.
Ok, guys. I thought I'd follow up. I bought the product above and it arrived today. I bought the proper year. And it didn't resolve anything. Same issues. I made a small video of what's happening but not sure if I can post it somewhere here. Any other ideas on what this could be, or do you think the logic board is toast?
Ok so I took it to a shop and they said it was hard drive failure.
Is this a good question?
