Hello fellow mac user's:

I am ashamed to say that I have dropped my powerbook and the display is broken. I have been able to remove the display but in the process I accidentaly broke the keybored connector. (if you've ever seen the inside of a powerbook or macbook you know what i mean) I am currentley looking for a powerbook 17" display and schematics. What I plan on doing is to use the schematic to jump start my powerbook and never turn it off again!!! Thats why I need the schematic. The display I can live with b/c I can integrate the working half of my powerbook with my entertainment center.

Please repond when you have or know where I can find the schematic for a Powerbook G4 or a fair priced display...

The connector is completely off the logic board. =( is there anyone out there that can tell me or help me find what pin from the ribbon i need to connect to the logic board so that i can just turn on the power???? once the power is on i can handle the rest....
