Starts up with fans on high and no backlight-help please
I have a MacBook Pro 15" Unibody Late 2008 and Early 2009 with a dead hard drive and no battery.
It starts up fine with an Apple OS disc but the fans are on high and the backlight is out. I can barely see the Apple logo in the middle of the screen and hear the cd chiming away.
Any ideas? No damage physically to the Macbook. First thing I did was reset the SMC which got it turning on. Took me a few tries to get it to turn on, than I zapped the pram, now the above is my problem. I did remove the back cover and the motherboard looks good.
I’m stumped, especially since the fans keep going on high.
