know that this is probably a MB issue, but i thought i'd check to see if anyone else had another "cheaper/easier" idea to try before i plunk down the filthy lucre for another MB.
Have a 2 month old refurbished c640.
one day the screen sort of fades to a "pixely white" and stops working. can't reboot. power down. won't power up. waited a day. it powered up for about 3-4 minutes then went white again, won't power up.
when i try to power up, the 3 lights blink, you can hear it hit the hard drive .. then nothing. the whole process takes less than 2 seconds.
i'm gathering that it possibly overheated and fried the MB ... but why the fade to white ... why work the next day for 2-3 minutes?
i've tried w/wo the battery, w/wo cd, w/wo shoes and socks ... no dice.
