    Does that mean, it does not boot into the system (no Menu Bar or Dock or Desktop icons visible)?

    Have you tried any of these steps?


    Btw, do you employ a backup strategy? And how old is that MacBook?
    You can also contact Apple to get replacement DVDs (Mac OS X and iLife) or get the 19 USD Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard Upgrade DVD from the Apple Online Store and use that, if the Mac was released before 2010.

    Thanks for getting back to me !!!

    As I siad earlier , I do not have any of the disc that would normally come with it . So what it does is powers on , Makes the chime , but the screen is totally blank . I would say it is kind of grayish / Blue , with absolutely nothing on it at all . I did do some trouble shooting procedures that I found online to no Avail .Any ideas would be most appreciated ...
