Well after a rush job late last night of upgrading the memory on my Mini Mac, I managed to brak a ribbon on the back board, which on a little research I have found out is just the audio cable.
So now when the mac boots no sound, and no sound from the web, or any apps I use on it :-(
So... Does anyone know if I can get around this by using a USB sound card? and if so, can anyone advise me of one which will work with a Mac, and that wont break the bank :-)
TIA for any advise anyone can offer.
hmmm possible, the mac is around a 2005 model. so its not new. I would have to open it up again to have a look. Thanks for the link I will add that to my watch list and check it out at the weekend :)
one thing i did remember tho when I broke the cable from the board end, was it looked like it was soldered onto the board, and not clipped...
What's your Mac's model identifier? To find this out, go to About This Mac on the Apple menu and then click More Info.
2005 could be a G4 unit just get a set of speakers.
Hmm I will try a set of speakers this evening, maybe they will work.. if not thanks to Markcuk I will get one of these USB sound cards which should do the trick :)
