MacBook Top Case Compatibility?
Will a top case made for the older Core Duo MB (the one with the brown cable) work on a Core 2 Duo MacBook (the one with the silver cable)? I think that I have a defective C2D top case and thought about checking the power-up capacity by using a spare Core Duo top case that I own. The connectors on the logic board seem compatible, but the C2D machine still will not power up with the known-good top case from the Core Duo.
Is this possibly a compatibility problem on power-up, or something else?
Is this a good question?
