Replacing logic board from E-bay


I'd like to ask if the logic board I found on ebay would fit my MacBook A1181 Black, I believe it's late 2006, the CPU is 2.0/4M/667INTEL06 2x512RAM 120GB HDD

The board I'm looking at is "Apple 13" Macbook White Mid 2007 2.0Ghz Intel T7200 Logic Board. p/n: 661-4482 (Energy star) Free upgrade to 2.16Ghz Intel T7400 Logic board whilst stocks last!"

Is there another logic board that would fit my MacBook?

I'm kinda new at this, so any help will be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!

Maybe this one would fit? "MacBook A1181 Black T7400 2.16 Logic Board 820-1889-A"

The part number is the same as the one on my broken board.


This video is as straight forward as it gets!

Perfect answer, thank you :)

Can a MacBook hold an SSD drive, what's the RAM limit and what kind of CD-ROM unit can I replace the old one with? Hope you have any more of those useful links :)



You can buy a kit and replace your optical drive with a SSD drive.

The first macbooks 1181 like yours only handle 2 GB (2 X 1 gb) ram.


Again super efficient. Thanks a lot lemerise!

Super good info. Thanks


I've ordered a new Logic board from E-bay, will give the feedback once I've replaced it. Thanks again, hope I can return the favor someday :)


Thanks guys but I must say that the credit should go to John (rdklinc) who posted this great video on youtube, ebay and on his website. Thanks John !!


Ok, I replaced the logic board with a new one, but I have another problem now. The computer turns on, I can hear the DVD unit and the chime, but the screen stays black. I can hear the HD spinning, the apple logo on the back is not lit. If I plug in the charger it appears to charge the battery normally. I am using another HD though, don't really know if it's formatted or not but I don't think this has nothing to do with it. Looking forward to you guys illuminating me ;) Thanks!


Another thing I've noticed, the drive light is blinking steadily. Also, I've inserted a dvd into the drive and Eject button is not responding :S

Thanks again for help!
