Blank screen, no chime, only#1 LED = New Logic Board?
I’m running a 2.4 Ghz Intel Core 2 duo with 3Gb 667 Ddr2 ram, ATI Radeon HD 2600 Pro.
After reading many forums online, I have decided to ask for a second opinion of what I have made as a self-diagnosis. The logic Board needs replaced. Therefore, here is the back-story:
A week ago the comp starting having freezing issues, acting sluggish with the hard drive making noises and intermittently have the rainbow wheel pop up for extended periods of time. Until one day it freezes completely. I performed a hard shut off with the power button and tried to re-boot. To which nothing happened (after multiple tries). Due to the hard drive making noises I assumed it had crashed and promptly replaced it.
Boot up was fine, reinstalled Osx and it seemed to have fixed the problem. Until Yesterday when it had approx. five "restarts" and I use restarts loosely as it acted as though the power was pulled and then booted up again (did not go through shutdown process). Then it froze again, performed hard shut down which on reboot I had no chime, no screen, yet optic drive spins up with #'s 1,2&3 Led's lighted. Re-seated the ram, tried both ram cards (in each slot together and individually) and spare ram cards with no effect.
This morning I plugged back in and on power up LED's #1,2&3 shine for a split second then whole comp shuts down with only #1 LED on.
Any confirmation that the logic board needs replaced would be great, thank you.
Is this a good question?
