    Try this.

    Unplug your power cord. Remove the battery. Wait 10 minutes for any capacitors or whatever to discharge. Press the little black button on the motherboard, it's usually next to the battery. Plug in the power cord and power it up without the battery.

    If the mac boots up perfectly, shut down again and reinstall the battery.

    If what he said above does not work check out OWC at macsales.com for processors and upgrades.
