    If the computer seems to be starting up but the display is black then it's quite likely (since you have an early 2008 non-unibody) a GPU issue and will need a new logic board. See http://support.apple.com/kb/ts2377

    My GF has the 17 inch non unibody mbp and had this issue recently.
    She took it to the apple store and they replaced the GPU for free, and now it works perfectly. This was about a month or two ago.
