White Screen On Boot

My MacBook is not getting passed the white screen on boot, it also has the chime. My first thought was that my Samsung Evo SSD had somehow failed, so I booted into internet recovery and tried the disc utility. It identified the disk perfectly fine, and I had no options available on the first aid tab of the disc utility. I tried removing the SSD, still nothing.

Im thinking that my logic board has died. I use this laptop for very extended amounts of time. I've used it for 5-10 hours a day over almost four years and the battery has 1,500 cycles on it.

The hard drive/IR cable on your machine most likely is bad. Take it to an ASP and ask them about the replacement program (that should be free).
