Hi all, Firstly apologies, I registered in 2005 and sought your advice as a mac newbie and hung around posting erractically until 2006 and then nothing... and now I need your help so I'm back. Typical I know. However I hope you can forgive me enough to help. Last night I knocked my 12" 1.5ghz PB off the arm of the sofa, it fell onto a carpetted floor in an inverted V (so the top of display and front of keyboard hit the floor first). When I picked it up there was a screen kind of 'overlaid' over the page I was looking at (the way dashboard overlays over a screen) saying I needed to restart. It may have said something else but I don't think so. It was in 3 languages. I switched it off by holding down the power button. Then hit the power button again. Got the whirring of it firing up, though a much shorter noise than normal. No chime cos I have my speaker turned off anyway. and nothing. Black screen. I can hear the usual humming sound of the fan or HD (?) but nothing. If I press the caps lock key or num lock key the backlight comes on. If I clsoed the lid the light at the front doesn't come on and it doesn't seem to go into sleep mode. I've tried restting the PMU amd all that appears to have done for some reason is mean that the numlock F6 key now doesn't turn on the numlock lighht, the F5 key does instead. I've tried another combination the name of which i forget but involves turning the machine on and holding down the command, option P and R keys down. Nothing... I've tried attaching it to an external monitor and the monitor just says no signal check cable. can't see any dmaage to the screen ,no damage to the case. So any ideas what I might have done? and is it going to be hard/expensie/worthwhile fixing? I can't afford a new mac and to be honest i don't want a new mac really, i really like my 12 incher, if there was a like for like replacement in the mbPro line I'd go for it if i had the cash. Any advice gratefully received. I'm writing this on a WINTEL and already had to re-boot twice and ctrl-alt-del to close IE three times. That's more than I had to do in 4 years with my pb...I'm so annoyed with myself right now.
