    Hi,

    My Macbook white which was bought exactly two years ago today won't turn on. Its got full charge on the battery and it won't power on even when connected to the mains.

    I press the power on button and the white light indicator does not light up and the screen does not come on!!

    Help!!

    Maybe it's taking the day off since it's your Macbook's anniversary. :D

    J/K, you may have to do an SMC reset.

    no, SMC reset won't do anything to your data.

    (sorry for butting in, I clicked into this thread accidentally [stupid fast moving forum spy] and just decided to answer)

    I searched around a bit but found nothing other than resetting the SMC. Hopefully someone will come around soon with another solution. Other than that I would recommend to take it to the Apple store or an authorized Apple repair, even though it's out of warranty they can at least give you an estimate. I always recommend buying Applecare.
