    hey guys

    my macbook doesn't startup and I just see a blank screen when I turn it on. It makes the booting sound with the little music chime but that's it, nothing appears on the screen, it's kind of white. This started when
    I did a hard forced quit because the computer wouldn't respond.

    What I've Tried so far:

    I pulled the battery, held the power button down 5 sec, replaced the battery, plugged in the power but same results.

    I also tried a few "tricks" I've seen posted, hold the apple, command, p and r key on boot up and the command and eject key on boot help there.

    Any Ideas?

    One guy said he had to replace his ram

    Seeing as you have reset the PRAM, it could be the logic board that is causing the problems.
    Do you have your install disc? Trying booting from it. (Hold c after you hear the chime). Are you still under warranty/ still have Applecare?

    I'll try the reboot, still under warranty, no apple care
