 Post subject: Black screen on boot
PostPosted: Tue Jan 20, 2009 10:56 am 
My screen stays black upon boot. I took it to the Apple store and they told me it's the video "board" and I need a new logic board for $1,200 - $1,400. This unit is 15 months old.

Is there anything I can do to confirm this before having it repair (by someone besides Apple for about half the cost)?

what kind of machine is it exactly? If it is one of the newer models 2.4GHZ or more, it can be just the magsafe board, but older than that and it is probably the logic board and those prices are fairly accurate.

This is a 15" 2.4GhZ MacBook Pro with 4GB RAM 160GB glossy screen purchased new in September '07.

It could be just the magsafe board then which is $89.95. You can send it to us and we can diagnose it, but it still could be the logic board.
