Why isn´t my screen working?
2 days ago i started "repairing" my macbookpro by changing the drive (new ssd-drive, Samsung MZ-7TE120BW 840 EVO Basic(6,4 cm (2,5 Zoll) (120GB, 256MB Cache, SATA III), 2 gb additional ram (QUMOX @ 2GB DDR2 667MHz PC2-5400 PC2-5300 (200 PIN) SODIMM) and a new battery.
I think all the parts are compatible, because i used Google! :)
The Change of battery went well (hooray, easy one), the drive and ram Exchange didn´t:
After following the complete guide through drive and ram Exchange and Tuning the macbook on again i got a blackscreen. Power is on, DVD is working, bootable System DVD (?) inserted, no Screen.
Do i Need to prepare the new drive first? or is a bootable usb-stick necessary? Or did something during the repair go wrong? The whole process was fine i think, no broken connections, i think i went through it very carefully.
If it isn´t that trivial (like booting or preparing something), what should i check if reopening the macbook again is needed?
Thanks for helping an apprentice :)
