    Can you give us any info about your MBP? That will make it easier for people to try and help you :)

    What generation MBP do you have? What size screen? Which OS are you running?

    Without these basic pieces of information, we're just poking around in the dark here.

    I bought it used one from someone few days ago so i dont know much of its specs ..

    Only thing which i can tell which i got from bottom panel is model number A1260, screen must be 15inch , and its macbook pro ..i mentioned earlier i can hear the chime .. i tried few function buttons and i can hear a beep everytime i hit fn and function keys .. seems like motherboard is active , i have tried removing both ram memories but did't help either.

    One thing which might be helpful is when i start it i can see white screen less than a second but then it stay black ..

    Could anybody please suggest me anything i can try ??

    When it's a known company policy, it isn't being lucky.

    OP, you are eligible for the nVidia 8600GT recall, have the machine tested at your local Apple store or retailer, if it fails the test, you'll get a whole new logic board free of charge. If it doesn't even boot, you'll have to pay a flat repair fee out of pocket.
