    Hi guys,

    I have a prob with my MBP and wondered if anyone had an idea what the problem is?

    Today the screen just goes black.. when i turn the backlight up and down i can see some difference but no picture on screen.

    The mac book is still on and music playing.

    Cheers in advance for ya help

    Is it the all-silver "classic" kind? It might be the video card failure. If you bought it within the correct year span (it hasn't been 4 years yet) you should be covered under the nVidia/Apple lawsuit settlement thing - they determined that the graphics chips were faulty.
