One of the Macs I bought in bulk turns out to be totally boned, and is deader than a doornail. I tried PMU resets, replacing the PRAM battery, no dice. As such, I tore into it, and removed all the components from it. I’m going to sell them for spares (including the processor).
One thing I’m not going to sell is the motherboard, as I suspect that’s what’s bust. I’m currently trying to remove it from the casing, but I’m having absolutely no luck whatsoever. I’ve removed every screw I could see, but no dice. It has some ‘studs’ which I think hold the MB in place until it’s slid out then up. Unfortunately, there seems that there might be some concealed screws or something still holding it in place. As such, it won’t slide, so I can’t get it out. As I say, I’m not concerned about the MB itself, so destroying it isn’t an issue, but I really want to keep the case intact, for the reason outlined above. Any ideas?
