LOL ikr, sorry Im such a newb, you would think after a year of watching Louis I would know this stuff, but I cannot find a single video where he shows exactly where to take your measurements. I really appreciate the help. Okay there is no reading on either side of L, and yeah the DMM is definitely on. Resistance to GND on L? Again sorry if that I'm not measuring it right, brand new to troubleshooting board repair.

To start the conversation again, simply ask a new question. Came home from work and went to turn on my late MacBook Pro. It won't start up. Nothing happens no tone, no motor noise, nothing.

There might be a problem with your battery in the computer. What do the battery level lights show on the side of the computer? It would also be wise to visually inspect the magsafe receptacle on your computer and see that it's not damaged or plugged up with some foreign object or debris.

This could be preventing one of the pogo-pins from making proper contact to enable charging. Sep 5, PM. Thanks for your response.

The battery indicator lights are completely dead not even the first light flashing. I've inspected and used compressed air to clean both the MagSafe charger as well as the receptable on my computer. Neither is damaged or dirty. It could just be your system management controller. Try resetting it using the following procedure:. If that doesn't give any love it may actually be a battery problem.
