When I push the start button, nothing happens (most of the time).
The symptoms: Start-up fails. But a few times I'd get the start-up chime and then nothing. Once or twice I got to log in and then nothing. I noticed, before it died, that while typing and the screen wiggled, the screen contents also wiggled in sync. I took guidance from iFixit, using the "get the hard drive out" series. I needed to retrieve my photo library. Yah, Yah, I know, "why didn't you have it backed up?" I just didn't. I bought a DC-in assembly from you guys and in the meantime got a Universal Drive Adapter (Newertech) from OWC to get the stuff off my drive.
Yesterday I got everything back together, but got the same symptoms. 5 or 6 tries, maybe 1 or 2 chimes. This morning I tried again, got logged in, then nothing.
Does any of this ring any bells?
Thanks in advance.... J Aronson
I tried reseating my RAM to no avail, but thanks
Is this a good question?
