Hi all, This is my first post on the site, but I must say that I have been following the helpful advice on here for years. Bravo to an excellent site. This morning, I had a peculiar indicent occur with my Early 2008 (non-unibody) 15" MacBook Pro. As I opened the computer after waking up, the macbook pro did not respond. The screen appeared blank. Even though I tried to turn up the screen brightness, nothing appeared. Additionally, the macbook was hooked up to an external display, yet nothing responded on the external display also. Realizing that the Macbook Pro had made some funny hard drive noises lately, I took the drive out to test on another computer. Fortunately, the drive still works. Unfortunately, the computer is still not working. The computer is turning on, as the the LED indicator on the screen release indicates, yet nothing occurs with the screen or the computer as I boot it up. This seems to be unlike most problems that people experience. Does anyone have any recommendations or proposed remedies on ways to fix this issue? I appreciate the help.
