My Mac Is Dying Repeatedly
I just replaced the battery on my Mac. Mac model a1398 with battery model a1417 because I thought that was the issue as it was pretty worn out. But the Mac keeps dying.
On the far left the copper point with a screw looks heat damage. Could possibly be water damage from the previous owner though I've had it for over 2 years.
When powered on sometimes it works, every hour or so for 15 minutes then crashes and won't turn back on. When battery is disconnected and plugged back in to restart, the fans run but there is no display.
Could it be compromised by viruses? Or parts damage? Do I have to remove the logic board or should I try a recovery mode?
