    I currently have a MacBook got it around 3 or 4 years ago. It worked perfectly fine, until one day for no reason I turn the mac on and the screen goes black :( . The mac symbol appears along the with loading circle, after a couple of seconds the screen suddenly goes dark. I can hear the computer is running, the volume sound as well if i press the volume key on the keyboard. I left it for a couple of hours charging, but the same thing happens. Everytime after the initial loading the screen goes black! :eek::eek:

    Help! :confused:

    you should try hooking it up to an external monitor to see if it displays anything there maybe something wrong with the display or graphics card.

    Or hdd could of failed Or maybe a bad logic board

    We need further info to diagnose it.
