    Hello people,

    Well this is my first post, I´m glad to join to this community.

    This is my problem:

    I have a Macbook 15" Mid-2009 Unibody which was working really well, then my hdd died so I changed it and turned it on.. The only I got was the CHIME sound and white screen.

    There's not icon folder or anything.

    Here's what I've tried:

    1. I tried to boot into recovery or boot manager but I couldnt because my keyboard doesn't recognize any command
    2. I tried to reset NVRAM, PRAM and SMC but I couldnt because my keyboard doesn't recognize any command
    3. Tried another pair of RAM
    4. Tried another HDD with a working installation of MAC OS X
    5. I tried an external monitor but nothing happens, all I get is CHIME and white screen on my macbook
    6. I left it on for hours but stays in white screen
    7. I tried to start with an external HDD mac os x installation
    8. I tried to use a usb keybord but doesn't work

    I noted that the fancooler is working really fast (more than normal).

    Thank you very much for any help you could give me.

    It might not be that the old hard drive died; there could be an issue with the ribbon connector or another part in the macbook pro.
