Answer to "My mac whistles and does not boot."Hello There the Scenario shown seems to indicates several problems : at first i suggest you to recap completely logic board , even if the capacitors ( 47uF16 v) apparently look good i'm pretty sure they are gone ( if you are good with soldering is not so difficult ) Logic board must be washed very good ( with isopropyl alcool )after having take off old capacitors , then take a look to traces if you see broken and check continuity with multimeter Replace with new capacitors and good luck. But if i understand it seems that you have also a problem with analogic board ( no fan , no video) it should be important to check voltage ( maybe flyback transformer fail) or capacitors inside power supply are gone. If you are resident in USA the best way is get in touch with Charles Phillips ( www.maccaps.com) you can find capacitors references and also ask for a complete recap service ( is one of the Best in the World) Good luck!!
