Jan 31, 2009, 12:40 PM
MacBook 13-Inch with Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard), 2.16GHz, 160GB HD, 1GB RAM

This computer will not power on anymore, for whatever reason I am not sure. have had this laptop for a little over a year, and have taken immaculate care of it, always carrying it in a protective carrying case. As of last week, it will no longer turn on. No liquid or any other substance was spilled on it, so I am baffled as to the reason it will not turn on. When plugged into the charger, the charger lights up green, as to show that the computer is fully charged, yet it will not power on. If you know how to fix this problem, please let me know!

You can try resetting the SMC (System Management Controller). When the system or parts of the system become inactive resetting the SMC will correct these issues. My Macbook Air's camera stopped working and after resetting the SMC it reactivated it.
