Recently, my MBP stopped working. Ive had it since the new MBP's came out and last week I updated it to leopard and 2 gigs of ram. Everything worked fine for a week, then last saturday it was running on its battery and it died at 78%. I tried turning it back on, and I received the following message: You need to restart your computer. Hold down the power button for several seconds or press the restart button. I tried everything to get it to work again, and it wont. I even uninstalled the new ram and put in the original ram and it still didnt work. I went to the apple store and they said it needs a new logic board, and I am out of warranty and it will cost over $1000 to fix. Today, I bought a firewire cable to hopefully transfer the old data from my MBP to my mom's MB. I start up my old computer in target disk mode, but the harddrive never shows up on the MB desktop. I have also tried the Migration Assistant, and that never picks up the harddrive either. I have tried every possible way of restarting the computers, unplugging and plugging back in the cables. Does anyone have any suggestions of how to get my old files onto the new computer? Thanks.
