    My MacBook Pro won't boot after latest software upgrade. Black screen. Hard drive starts and then stops. Genius said the motherboard was most likely the problem.

    I am inlined to agree with the genius. But, wanted to see if anyoneight have an idea. Looks like a new iMac is in my future.

    Check the RAM or take out the hard drive and see what it does when you try to boot it up if you could.
