iMac won't boot after replacing logic board
I just replaced my logic board in my 27" imac after I broke off the display port connector on my original logic board. It booted the first time I tried, but the fans were on constantly and I forgot to reattach the wifi cable so I took it apart again.
Then I booted I without the display installed to see if the fans were running normally. They were so I powered it down by holding down the power button. I then installed the display and proceeded to boot it up again.
I cannot get it to boot now. It is stuck on the apple logo with white background and the loading bar moves slowly towards the end but it never leaves this screen. I have tried SMC reset, pram reset, safe boot, boot to recovery partition, booting from external USB drive, booting to disk utility.
How can I fix this? Why did it boot the first time and now it won't?
Update 1: I was able to boot up in OS X after I reinstalled the video card. It seemed to work fine. Then it froze up today. Now it won't boot into OS X anymore. I was able to run the Apple Hardware Test and it said there was not problem with the hardware. How do I test to see if it is the video card causing the problem?
Is dit een goede vraag?
What were doing in it the first time and what did you do besides break the logic board? Do you have an external back up drive with a system on it or another Mac with a firewire port?
I am thinking it may be the GPU because I did remove that to re-route the wifi cable. I would think that the screen would be black if the GPU was not working??
What keyboard are you using? Wireless or wired?

I am using the Apple wireless keyboard.
If your Mac doesn’t make any noise at all when switching it on, or if you hear the fans running but nothing else, you may have a logic board failure. Try to replace your apple wireless keyword and then try again.
