Re: ibook display died!!
happened to me aswell an d i paniced.
try with a stron light against the display. do you see in schemes what
should be displayed? - then it is only the backlight and all you have to
do is reset the brightness to high what i did in osX.
i am sorry if it is really broken. but the thing happened to me at 3 in
the morning and lights were't good anymore, neither were my eyes.
and i just over-reacted.
