    i broke my topcase cable
    Hey Guys,

    I was cleaning out the fan on my MBP - Early 2008 kind. When I went to put everything back together I pulled the topcase cable connecting to the logic board out by accident. So naturally I am screwed, I have been looking for a replacement cable and want to avoid getting a whole new topcase. In the mean time is there anyway to turn my computer on?? I think I can work with an external keyboard and mouse, but since the topcase cable is busted the power button wont work. Does anyone know how i can use my computer until i figure this out. I have an appoint with at the apple store in a few days. I have a feeling this is going to cost me a few hundred.... all because of 1 cable. Please let me no ASAP!

    Thanks alot!

    i do but i am not recommending it it is extremely risky i would recommend going on ebay and buying the top case you are not going to find any cheaper and you are not going to find that cable.
