    Hi, my brother is having a problem with his unibody MacBook that he bought just a few months ago. It won't start when the power button is pressed, the sleep indicator light turns on and that's all. There's no start up tune, and nothing appears on screen. I had a similar problem with my MacBook Pro. I was told that the logic board needed to be replaced due to too much dust or moisture. Could this be the same problem? and has anyone else here ever had the same problem?

    Just tried starting it again, now the loading screen with the apple logo appears, then everything goes blank again.

    You may need to Reset the System Management Controller
    I had something similar happen with mine a few weeks ago & this fixed it:
