Is this a video card or what
My problem is a white screen on startup. Nothing but white you can hear the chimes and I figured the video card or cable and was going to tear it down for a more careful examination.
What happened next kind of has me baffled. I know I've done this with tons of PCs but never with a Mac.
One of the guys in the office had seen me preform a static discharge on a PC and figured I can do that so he shut down the Mac unplugged it and and held down the power button for 30 sec or so then powered it on and this actually worked. However every time the mac is shut down or goes to sleep it comes back on with the white screen and requires the "Treatment".
What am I looking at here . Is there a short in the board thats causing this to happen and Ive never heard of this fix working on a mac before.
Can one of you to kindly direct me in the right direction to fix this issue. Would be ever so grateful for the help
