Hello. I am worrying that my less than 1.5 years old SR Macbook Pro is dead. Last night, before I went to bed, I put the computer to sleep mode under leopard. When I waked up this morning, I could not wake up the computer. So, I pressed the power button continuously to force the computer to shut down. Unfortunately, when I pressed the power button again to turn on the computer, nothing appeared on the screen. No gray screen. The usual apple startup chime did not come out (not sure if it was caused by the fact that I turned off the volumn while I was working late last night). Even I pressed the "caps lock" button, the led on the key did not turn on. The LED next to the drive was on though. I did feel that the HD was spinning. I forced the computer to turn off by pressing the power button continuously and tried again several times (including pressing the power button with the option key, pressing the power button with control and command key, resetting the PRAM), same problem appeared. Then, I inserted the leopard DVD and hoped that it would boot from the disk. Unfortunately, it did not help. It seems that the computer was trying to read the DVD but nothing showed up after awhile. Now, I cannot even eject the DVD. I would like to get your advice. 1. Anybody knows what is happening? Is my MBP dead? 2. I have not backed up recently. What will happen if I take it to the Apple Service Center? In case they are going to erase the data in the drive, is there any way to backup the data now? Yesterday or the day before, I installed the latest QuickTime 7.5.5 and HP printer driver through the software update option of Leopard. This is probably not the cause as I used bootcamp to switch between leopard and vista several times yesterday. There was no problem. Now, the gray screen does not even show up on the LCD screen. Even the power is on, the LCD screen seems to be off. Thanks.
