I don't think that will work. The logic board is the motherboard. If its broken nothing will work unless you get it fixed. Don't waste your money.

yeah, if the logic board is dead, the computer won't run.
However, i'd check this out:

if your serial # is affected, apple may replace/repair the board for free.

Yes, I was able to have mine repaired under this program, and I'm very pleased with the way it was handled by Apple. However, to answer the original question, no, you can't simply plug the iBook into an external monitor once the logic board has failed. All display output is typically dead once this occurs.

I have had one dead iBook (sounds like the logic board) for about 7-9 months.

I never thought it would be covered like this, to bad I waited so long. guess it will stay a paper weight as the offer ended late '05

I really need to get to this site more often

regards
Ray
