    I'm currently out of the country doing field research and just the other night, there was a power outage here and now my ibook won't start up. Of course, being in a "third world" country, I wasn't able to invest in a good power surage protector.

    Is my computer dead for good?

    I have a lot of work that needs to be done and my computer is essential here. Anyway, I can rescue my computer? I press the power button and it does absolutely nothing.

    What do you people think might be the problem and how much am I looking at to fix this?

    Lastly, are my data on my HD okay?

    Your data is probably fine because the first thing to fry will be the power supply. As a stab in the dark (probably won't work), try resetting your PMU. However, I think you'll probably need to take this to a technician. Sorry. :eek:
