Well I am starting to think Macs just hate me haha....
Well I got another computer on Craigstlist. I replaced the keyboard and guess what.
THE COMPUTER SHORTS AGIAN LIKE THE ONE YESTERDAY. I am extremely frustrated. I am using a completely different keyboard and a completely different computer from yesterday.
I have absolutely no idea what is causing this. I am replacing the keyboard correctly. I am putting everything back in exactly how it was before.
I have tried different power adapters. Everything I can think of. I am about ready to just throw everything away and take a huge loss because at this point I am beginning to thing I am not meant to do this.
I know you have probably not seen problems like this before, but please let me know if you have any ideas. Thanks.
This one is doing it both with the keyboard plugged in and the keyboard unplugged.
The computer will boot up to the apple logo and then short. The computer booted up fine before I replaced the keyboard. I am pretty sure the logic board is seated properly. Could the logic board be touching metal somewhere, or could a screw in a wrong hole be too long and touch metal or something? I am just out of ideas.
Some people are suggesting I could have messed up the logic boards by static. I just don't understand how this could happen two days in a row to two different computers. I was so careful with the logic boards. Barely even touching it. I have replaced a keyboard before these two and that one worked fine, so I don't know what could have happened differently here....
