    So I'm in my second day of owning this laptop and I've run into a problem. I sit down to do some homework and the thing wont turn on. Nothing, I've even tried to start it without the battery attached and it STILL won't turn on...

    What the heck is going on?

    Run to your nearest Apple store and complain.

    Did you install any system updates (firmware updates maybe?) that might have caused a problem? When you press the power button, does anything happen at all (screen backlight turns on, fans spin up, cd drive makes noise, indicator light on the front of the MBP light up)? Try holding the power button and see if that does anything.

    you did remember to plug it in to the wall when you took the battery out right?

    anyway if you GOOGLE (follow that link there are more good pages there too) "Macbook Pro Wont Turn on"

    the first thing that comes up is

    Troubleshooting a MacBook or MacBook Pro that won't turn on

    a nice little apple doc about what to do if your macbook pro wont turn on;)
