    Okay so my computer won't turn on
    - the charger has a faint green light
    - don't tell me to do the control command thing because it won't work I've tried it and still doesn't turn on like at all
    - I have read some things that I should try taking out and putting back in the battery

    You could disconnect the charger and pull out the battery. Then open the lid and push the power button for 5 seconds and reinstall the battery. Try booting again.

    If that does nothing, maybe your hard drive failed. You can test that by pulling your hard drive out and connecting it as a USB device to another mac. Does your macbook show any signs of life when the button is pushed? Like hard drive noise or a spinning fan when listening closely?

    It doesn't turn on at all

    But I'll try the battery thing, where do you get the really tiny screwdriver to take the battery out
