@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? ?!

That key combination does not seem to do anything. The mouse works on the external monitor but that is it. A start up logon menu does not pop up. It makes the login sound but does not provide me with the menu to type in my password. Any other suggestions before I make the hour and a half- (one way) drive to an apple store?

@Melissa - there is a key combination to switch from mirroring mode to monitor extending mode. It unfortunately changes depending on which OS and model you have. It is typically going to be the apple (command) key plus the function key with the two rectangles.

Okay so I bought a mini DVI to VGA adapter and plugged my laptop into a monitor and I have a perfect picture. However, all I see is my background. The little sign in box does not come up where I can enter in my password and logon- any suggestions what I can do now??

@Melissa - that is normally what that would indicate.

Hello! My macbook screen is half white and half blackish with different color lines. If I tap on the sides the picture changes like the lines move and I can see the picture on my screen. Do you think it is the LVDS data display cable?
