My iBook just broke

My 12" iBook screen just freaked out and the machine died. Applying pressure to the case makes the pattern change. Crappola.

do you know what on it broke?

do you know what on it broke? Would a mobo replacement fix it or was it a video issue or what? Any idea? Are you going to be able to fix it?

If not, wanna give it to me to test all the pieces and part out and sell for you on ebay (I'll take a cute of course)? Wink

The solder on the ATI chip is cracked. I'm trying to get a new MLB from work. Probably next week.

The same thing happened to my

The same thing happened to my iBook last year. It was freaky, the screen flashed and I noticed that tapping on the motherboard caused the video to jump or flash.

I had to shell out for a new board.
