I'm messing with a Macbook Pro A1260 that has no display when turned on. Some screws in the screen broke and cracked the display assembly so the entire assembly needs replacement. I thought maybe since it was broke some wires might have caused the issue, but after opening it up everything looks fine. I also attached an external display to it with a DVI-I to VGA converter. The external display does nothing. The computer appears to start up (fans work and makes some noises), it has a white light showing when it is turned on where the button to open the laptop up is. It also gets hot after a while so something is working. However there is no caps lock light coming on and the laptop makes no sounds while starting up. I tried hitting the f2 key to brighten the display and nothing. I'm thinking it has some motherboard problems atm, but could use some insight from someone else.
