    My daughters Mac book no longer boots.

    it powers up and the apple appears but then it shuts down.

    Does this software or hardware related

    I tried to boot to CD ( mac os X install disc ) but it just powers off ..

    The battery is charged cant figure this one out.

    Any help would be great

    Thanks

    That sounds like a hardware problem.

    Seems to me that the logicboard is failing.

    What model do you have? what year was it made?

    Yup, dead logic board. If its out of warranty, the repair (and part) may become costly.
