    MBP would not wake up from sleep so I held down the start button till it shut off, now when I go to start I can hear the disk spin up and the light comes on but no start up noise and the screen stay dark.

    Have you tried an SMC reset or maybe even a PRAM reset yet?

    Do you still have warranty?

    It may be the logic board that is failing, or just the HDD that can't spin up.

    Does the MBP still have and get power?

    07 MBP will not start revised.

    Now I am thinking it may be the video card? After various resets now I am getting the start up noise. So just for the heck of it I wanted to see if I could log in. After start I waited a few minutes until I figured the log in window was there, I logged in.....waited a few more minutes to give the desktop a chance to come up then I adjusted the volume to see if it made the adjust volume noise, which it did. Am I wrong or does that tell me that the computer was on?
    Also it makes the appropriate wake from sleep noises. I also connected to a remote moniter, still a black screen.
