Answer to: My display is slowly fading to white. Why?I had a similar problem, and contacted someone who had repaired the same problem - they suggested that the LCD itself was the culprit, and, indeed, in my case, replacing the LCD was the solution. It WAS NOT the LVDS cable, though it can cause similar problems in some cases, as I understand it. Used to be the LVDS cables were hard to find (but not so bad anymore) so I was glad the LCD fixed it.
Answer to: What is the maximum RAM for a MacBook Unibody A1342?I have 8GB installed in my A1342, and it works great. Apple specs say it can accept up to 4GB, nut in real world it will run 8gb. Mine was purchased from NewEgg - this item - 1 x PNY Optima 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) Laptop Memory Model MN8192KD3-1066 - no problems at all (your mileage may vary)
