I suppose it's hubris for me talking about it so much. My brand new powerbook is broken, for no reason I can understand. I called up the apple techs, spent 20 minutes talking to them, and in the end, it's going to be a hardware repair. They're shipping out the box tomorrow. So maybe someone HERE will be able to help. When I turn on my Powerbook, all I get is the blank screen, like right before the Apple comes up. And it stays blank. The DVD drive spins up, because there's still a DVD in there, but eventually it stops, and the computer's screen is just blank. I've tried booting it up holding the option key to get to the firmware to eject the disc, but the screen freezes before that can happen. Nothing else seems to work. Does anyone have ANY suggestions? C'mon - we're all mac nuts. One of us must know what the problem is.
