mayer, I do have a multimeter but do not understand what should be doing? The small magnetic plug has five pins and yes I noticed that they move inside when you push... But what should I be doing with the meter? What should each pin show? Matt, I used another ac which did not work either so I assumed it was the dc-in board.... but after changing it the problem stayed (used my adaptor on another mac were it worked correctly) Another strange fact is that my ethernet port does not work either (software says that there is not port present)
This interesting I also run into a sever kernel panic and could not even start up anymore (see post with kernlepanic tag). Before that I had a lot of trouble with bluetooth (showing the grey icon, saying bleutooth not available). Before the very sever kernelpanic (i had many others before, but could start up finaly of these other cases), the machine also said that airportcard was not configurated! When I tried to get to the char, it was not even listed! Does all this make any sense? Please, help needed.
