Having recently purchased a faulty macbook off here i now require a second one to scrounge parts from. Ideally i am looking for one with a smashed screen/broken superdrive/airport etc but a working mother/logic board.

Also, failing that i will buy a working one and then sell this one on for spares.

Let me no what you have,
All the best,
Danny

is the problem with it you have to push down on the bottom for it to start

the screen flickers white briefly and the unit is powering on, i can hear it., But the cd drive doesnt take in cds and the caps lock key doesnt light up etc so its almost like its not really on.

Just tried pushing on the bottom to no avail

many thanks for the link, i appreciate you helping. However, that is for a ibook/powerbook and not for a macbook. The macbook doesnt have a dedicated GPU with exception to the latest 9400M range
