    Hi Guys,

    My MacBook Pro (early 2008) won't startup anymore. When i press the power button it hear the standard dvd player noise and then it instantly turns off.

    I try'ed all the steps here: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1365?viewlocale=en_US

    Anyone have an idea? or do i need to take him to an repair center? (Again :( 4'th time in 5/6 months)

    Thanks

    Sounds like a logic board issue, call AppleCare. Keep us posted....:eek:

    Now i need to bring it to an repair center wich costs me 2hrs to drive to and 2hrs back so i need to take a day off AGAIN from work. This is the 4th time in 5 months that i need to bring my macbook pro in for repairs. and take another day of to pick it up again.

    I was really hoping Apple would come with a differend solution this time. They won't send UPS to pick it up.

    I dont think the service is verry good. i paid 2000 euro's including AppleCare.. when i need to bring in a macbook for the 4th time i was expecting a bit more service.

    I am verry disappointed in Apple.

    My question is, where the hell do you live? I live in small Sweden and Stockholm got loads of authorized repair centers.

    That's strange? Live in a small town? Would seem strange if you lived central (as in near the capital) and had that long a drive.

    Yes, unfortunately i live in a small town wich lays as far away as possible from the capital city :( Near the germen border.

    Maybe a repair point in Germany is closer!

    Might be! That's the problem with small towns, they aren't really a priority.

    I would think, after FIVE visits to the repair center for your MBP, Apple would be GIVING you a brand new MBP of your choice! While you are at the Apple Store ask for a replacement NEW MBP and also get the Store Manager's card, as well as the Customer Relations email address and phone number....:eek:

    Got it in for repairs, my MBP got a new Logicboard and a new Superdrive. Lets see how long it will last this time :)
