If this is in the wrong area I apologize, I also searched the forums and couldnt really come up with any other post I have a refurb MacBook Pro (15-inch, Late 2008) that I purchased and its been nothing but great since the day I got it. I upgraded the ram when I first got it (crucial 4 Gb) and a few months ago I installed an SSD drive with the lastest osx which has been running smoothly. I normally leave the laptop at home running and I log in remotely to it. Well one day I noticed I couldnt log in, and when I came home I was welcomed with a machine that was powered off. Strange So I went to push the power button and I didnt get any response. No status light on the front, but I do get a green light on the power cable plug and full charge on the battery. I took it to Apple and the genius wanted to blame my SSD drive at first but I told him I replaced the old drive and it still wouldnt power on. So pretty much I dont know where to go from there, I get no fans, no hard drive spin up and the genius told me I could send it in and pay over $300 to get it replaced (quoting anything from a short on the power button to a motherboard replacement). Anything else I should be looking at troubleshooting wise? Other information about the Mac: Graphics Card: - NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT and NVIDIA GeForce 9400M. Model ID: - MacBookPro 5,1 Order Nr.: - (MB470LL/A) Webcam: - Built-in iSight Any other information you need ill be more than happy to provide.
