    My MBP isn't turning on all the way, I will power it up and it will make the sound that it is turning on and the light in front will just stay dim grey. I've resetted the PRAM, and even took out my RAM and inserted it back in to see if that would help and nothing. I thought well if nothing else is going to work, I can try and put the Install disc to see if that will do anything. Nothing has changed, and now the cd is stuck in my computer. I've tried holding down the trackpad to eject, and even the eject button and nothing. Anyone have any ideas how to get it out? Or better yet to get the computer to turn on.

    Have you tried holding down the C key while booting? This should boot from the OS disc and allow you to do some exploring from there.

    Yes I tried that and nothing, just a black screen.

    Hmm, that's a bit tougher of a problem then, sorry to hear that. Hopefully someone with a similar experience will be able to enlighten you as to what the problem may be. Good luck.

    Launch Disk Utility and eject from there or from finder?

    My screen is black, so I can't do that. I've tried pushing the eject button and the track pad and nothing.
