Crap. Second mac laptop to take a dive in six months.
This one, a 14″ G3 ibook (800mhz).
Specifically, the video died on this one. You can start it up and hear it do its thing, but the screen stays blank. Also the little power-on light doesn’t come on when it’s on, nor does it pulse when it’s sleeping.
Just plain dead video.
It happened pretty suddenly.
Is this thing hosed? Any suggestions on what I could try to fix it?
This is one of the worst times for this to happen, financially. :\
Any readers I haven’t managed to alienate thoroughly yet, got any ideas?
- Zap the Pram (hold down command option P R while booting) — no effect
STILL TO TRY
- See if the ibook is covered by the logic board failure dealy — take it to the apple store tomorrow.
