Can I change out the processor on my A1181 early 2009 13inch model? I have changed the hard drive to solid state, then the ram up to 8GB, but I want to get it running faster. At least with an even faster booting than the fifteen seconds it currently takes.

@Matt - typically the light will flash a set number of times which indicates what kind of error it is. One or three quick flashes indicate a RAM issue and long flashes are more logic board firmware issues.

Odd, I have the exact same issue as Carol, except no sounds at all. When I press the power button, the green light on the right of the camera faintly flashes. If I hold the power button, it continues to flash. Full battery power, no boot. Logic board maybe? do you know what parts fail?

@Carol - it is most likely the logic board.

Late 2007 MacBook (white) 13". Black screen, no chime on startup, fully charged battery, power light is on. Can hear hard drive spin up. Removed HD and copied data. HD seems fine. Replaced both RAM chips (2 x 1GB) still black screen and no chime. Mobo?

@Melissa - well the only two other parts are the LCD panel and the logic board. The LCD usually goes out in thirds (the bottom or top third would be gone and the other two thirds would be fine). As far as what to do next, the LCD is a lot easier to test than the logic board, so I might would try that first.

Okay. I changed the display cable but that didn't do anything! My screen is still the same- lines on the top half and all white on the bottom half- any other suggestions? ?!
