    I got silever MacBook Pro5.1 year 2008. Screen has freezed while I was working....keyboard nor trackpad didn't respond anymore.
    I was able to turn it off. If I turn it ON, HDD sounds OK, also sleep light....but it doesnt do anything more. Screen is dark, it doesnt come online. I cant put it to target mode. It doesnt respond at all. I have changed both RAM slots with older RAM moduls that I still keep just in case. I assume they both are OK. I was able to put DVD DiskWarrior in optical I am unable to eject it.
    Is it motherboard? Could it be graphic card "only"? I still didnt remove HDD and try it as ext HDD or what ever to test it. But I am pretty sure it is not HDD. Please help with idea what and how to test it.....or how to eject DVD at least.
    thanks in advance

    If the screen isn't even powering on then i'm guessing its the Logic Board.

    No! Screen is black. It doesnt lit for a second or something.
    Optical drive spins the disk as far as I can hear. But I can not eject it anymore.
