Last night I replaced my Macbook screen as I cracked it earlier. unfortunately, wasn't as easy as I was hoping, having to pull out the keyboard and what not just to get ther inverter cable back in. I started her up today and to my astonishment it seems my Airport isn't active anymore, i went under System Preferences and tried to turn it on, and it won't work.
I got told two things, either a bad software update or Hardware. I'm going with Hardware. If software, i'll let you know when I get home.
So if hardware is the case, What may I be looking out for to try and determine if it is the card that has caused issues, or if the wires on the Antenna have touched/broke, etc. ?
If this was a PC I would be able to test and tell straight away.
