macbook wont start up =o=
omgoodness, 2 days before finals and this happens == apple u have disappointed me.
anyways, i was using my macbook fine, and i started noticing a severe slowdown for no reason (i was just browsing, webcaming, etc, normal load imo). the fan started spinning maxspeed and i noticed that its accessing my ram (paging in). force quiting some application didnt really help, so i just force shut down.
now whenever i start it up, it just sounds the apple chime and fan spin really hard. i tried putting in mac install disc and my included leopard disc, but pressing they dont appear when i press option, the optical drive seems to be fine as it spins and ejects disc. i tried resetting pram and smc as per listed in apple support. any extra help?
my macbook is 2.16ghz running leopard 10.5.3 on 1.5GB of ram

the problem is i cant boot from the disc or anything. tried both install disc (the tiger one) and leopard drop-in dvd. i hold C for the install disc, nothing. hold alt, gives me the pointer, but nothing shows up that i can click. i will probably bring it to the apple store in ubc (since i go to ubc) but its just plain annoying as i am trying to study n all of a sudden it breaks down.
any other suggestions?

EDIT: tried booting on each ram, no go. however, i noticed some white residue on the other piece of ram that apple supplied with the macbook. maybe something inside melted?
