    Macbook problems (logic board replacement)
    Hey this is my first time using this forum so here we go.
    My Macbook will be 3 years old this December. It has been running fine until recently.
    It has a 2.26 Intel Core 2 Duo and 4GB DDR3 Ram. And 87GB free of 250GB
    Recently it takes the computer 10-15 minutes to start up Grey screen then long blue screen.
    Occasionally when i open youtube videos or put it to sleep i get a kernel panic and i am forced to restart.
    When watching youtube videos the video will freeze while the audio continues then the video catches up 5 seconds or so later. The computer would freeze for a minute or two then continue as normal.
    Also the battery dies in less than 2minutes when disconnected. I plan to take it into my retailer but i came here looking for some advice beforehand. If anyone has any ideas what i could do to solve this that would be great.

    Thanks.

    You need a lot of troubleshooting.
    Start by running Apple Hardware Test - restart the Mac and hold the D key until you get the test menu.

    Yep, it'd suck to replace a logic board only to find out he hdd and battery were the culprits
