    HI there,

    My MBP SR won't start. It chimes shows the apple and the rotating thingie but then just dies down and shuts off.

    The battery is 100% charged. I've tried to unplug remove battery press the start button for 5 and 30 seconds but nothing.

    tried the verbose mode and it said killing all processes...:mad::mad:

    I'd like to try and boot up with the OS X installer but it doesn't boot. Can anyone help?

    desperate, the computer has a few months...

    Are you holding down "c" when you start up? That tells it to boot from the disc.
