    I need some help with my MacBook.

    While copying a DVD using Toast and I got up to cheek on it and I felt some static electricity and after that my Mac does not work.

    It will show something on the screen for a second or two then the screen goes dark and nothing happens. When I restart it, it makes a loud beep.

    I fear the hard drive is dead.

    Any ideas?

    call support, or take it to the store, but leave out the copying DVD part :p

    That is what I was thinking. I don’t have and Apple Store close by, but I do have a privately owned Mac store, that shouldn’t be a problem should it?

    I'd leave the "felt some static electricity" part out too.

    If it's in warranty, or you have AppleCare, call the store and ask them if they can do the repairs. My one AppleCare experience was through a private store, and it went well.

    I bought my MacBook in May or June of 2006 so I think it is still under warranty.

    I’ll give the store a call and see what they can do.
