I think my Logic Board is dying =(

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I think my Macbook is headed to its demise… a month ago it stopped charging. I was still under warranty then, brought it to the genius bar and was told it was an issue with my charger and was sent on my merry way thankful it wasn’t an issue with the computer itself…
Now flash-forward to now 6 weeks later and it’s getting very hot, randomly shutting off (it shut off twice today when I accidentally tapped the part of the computer where you plug in your charger) and it also shut down randomly last week when I placed on my desk.
When I turn it back on after a shut down the date/time is all messed up and it won’t charge at first. I have to turn it off and on a few more times, plug/unplug the charger till it eventually begins to charge again. These random shut offs happen both when the battery is drained and when the battery is full. I highly doubt it’s a charger issue as I just got this one a few weeks ago and the charger works fine on other computers. When it is not randomly shutting off it works fine and it only gets hot when I'm watching Netflix or a DVD
I am starting to lean toward the grim possibility that it is my logic board. And the FUN part is my warranty was up two weeks ago. Before now I haven’t had any problem with it…it figures. No chance in HELL I can afford to replace that. Can anyone clue me into what’s going on? Or what the general symptoms of a logic board issue are? Here is the battery information if you’d like to see it…thanks in advance!

My symptom was a big question mark in the middle of the screen? like that. It was trying to find the operating system and it could not.I had to have the logic board replaced by apple.
