My Mac Book Pro 2.2 (2008) Core 2 Duo, was working properly, and after waking it up (open the lid), the display was black...
It happened to me before and the other times I reckon it was some kind of bug with it not understanding it was meant to wake up (nothing a lid close, wait a bit and open lid wouldn't solve).
This time none of my previous solutions worked, and I forced a shutdown and then started it, and it remained with a blank (black) screen.
I can connect to it via the screen sharing application, and everything is working except the trackpad, the cursor doesn't move. Incidentally, connecting an external USB mouse, doesn't work, the cursor also doesn't move. (the cursor via screen sharing at least works).
By connecting to it remotely, I can go to the system preferences and can see that under the monitors preferences, it shows the standard display resolutions, and I connected an external monitor and nothing, so I assume the graphic card is gone.
So symptoms are:
- no display, no external display;
- no USB mouse (but it does read USB pen drives)
What I've done so far:
- reseted VRAM
- started from an external system
None of these worked and what puzzles me is why doesn't the USB external mouse work? (the rest seems to indicate the graphic card + trackpad are seriously damaged).
What can I do? is there a solution for this?
