    Hi,
    My MacBook suddenly turned off while I was surfing the web.
    then it doesn't turn on :(

    Now only the little isight LED blinks very slightly when I press the power button. Nothing else happens :(

    I tried to take out the battery & hold the power button for a few secs to reset the power management chip as instructed on Apple's website, but that doesn't work :(

    Could anybody please tell me what to do now?

    Hello,

    You follow all the steps outlined here: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1365 ?

    Have you tried turning your Macbook on with the battery removed and just the power cable hooked up?

    Hi Alvin,
    Thanks for your reply.
    I have tried those steps. Of course there are some steps that are N/A because my MacBook doesn't turn on at all.
    I also tried turning the MB on with the adapter attached & without battery like you mentioned.
    Nothing works :(

    I guess there must be a problem with the MB hardware.... :confused:
