    It's only an 8 month old mid 2009 uMBP (2.26ghz, 4GB, 500GB)

    I was using the Disk Utility when it asked me to insert my MAC OS X Install disc and press "c" during start up and repair it.

    PROBLEM: Every time I insert the disc and press "c" my screen goes completely dark. I thought it could have been a problem with the sensor so I flashed a light into it but it didn't work. I even tried putting it directly towards the sun light and still it doesn't work. Is there a fix for this or should I take it to Apple Store? I still have my free 1 year warranty, it didn't expire yet.

    Anyone? Is this a hardware fault?

    I talked to customer service and they told me to reset the PRM but it didn't work. Then they told me to run the extended Apple Hardware Test but no problems were found
