PLEASE HELP! Post-logic board replacement, having issues.
Hey MacBook gurus.. Ready for a puzzle? So, here's the story. My buddy spilled coffee on his computer, it "turned off immediately," but I had him do a hard shut down anyways to be safe. We drained everything out, and dried everything off. Apparently he tried to turn it on again (against my recommendations), but nothing happened. I took it home and took it apart, cleaned the logic board, keyboard, and everything else I could get to. Still nothing. So I told him his logic board was most likely fried. Replaced the logic board, MagSafe board, keyboard, battery, and RAM. Now I get the prohibited sign (picture attached), and it wont boot past that screen. Here is a summary:
1.) New logic board, battery, RAM, keyboard, MagSafe board
2.) hard drive works (plugged it into my computer, and it booted up fine)
3.) keyboard works
4.) fans on high when turning on the computer (tried resetting SMC, but computer wont turn on after resetting.. so I have to hold the power button for 5 seconds, then press power again in order to turn on)
5.) MagSafe indicator stays green
6.) was able to boot from CD, and disk utility does see the hard drive, but doesn't have it as an option to boot from
I think that is it.. Please, anyone have any suggestions!? I'm stumped here.
Is this a good question?
