    Hey folks,

    I've got a late 2006 17" C2D MBP. After a reboot, my system stopped booting completely - it hangs at the Apple logo, no hard drive activity.

    It will not boot from my Snow Leopard DVD or Leopard or Tiger DVDs either - just hangs.

    I've tried the usual PMU, battery in and out tricks.

    Booting into Safe Mode displays a few lines and then stops on:

    ACPI: System State [S0 S3 S4 S5] (S3)

    I can find nothing about this on Google.

    Also - Target Disk Mode works and I have been able to recover all my files. Not sure if this is relevant.

    Any ideas? Is this thing just cooked?

    Sounds like a failed logic board... I think you already looked at the guide so not much to do :(

    Does your MBP have 8600M GT?

    I've got the X1600.

    Guess I just have to keep on waiting for Arrandale...
