Did I cause a GPU failure when replacing the bottom pan?
I just replaced the bottom pan of my MacBook. I recently decided to upgrade the HD, and since I was taking it apart, I wanted to go ahead and replace the bottom pan to fix the latch that had broken 6 mos ago.
Anyway, everything went smoothly, but when I powered it back up, the screen stayed black. The power light comes on, optical drive spins up, fans working, but no display. Because of the HD replacement, I had inserted the OS X disk, but now can't get it out.
I tried reinstalling the old HD to rule that out, but get the same results. Is this a GPU failure? Could just removing and reinstalling the logic board have caused this?
Is this a good question?
