    Howdy! : D
    I have a macbook and just about 2 hours ago it froze.
    So I restarted it.
    But it wouldn't restart.
    It turned off but won't turn on.
    When I go to turn it on I can hear it kind of start.
    Like I can tell something is running, but its really quiet and usually its louder when it starts up.
    The screen doesn't turn on at all.
    And when I turn it off by holding the button down there's a little noise like 'pyu'
    Its an early 2007 model and its no longer under apple care.
    I'm not sure what I should do, I've already tried the power management restart.
    And that didn't work.
    Help would be greatly appreciated ! : D

    Control command power? I think that's for iBooks.

    A PRAM reset is command-option-p-r at startup until it chimes twice. A SMC reset is shutting down, unplugging the magsafe, taking out the battery, and holding down the power button for 5 seconds. The last thing is starting up in safe mode by holding down shift and logging in with your password. It runs a lot of normal maintenance.
