    Unhappy Is my MacBook done for?
    I have a white MacBook that I got in 2007 running 10.6. The other day, I shut it down for the last time apparently, as now when I press the power button, nothing turns on except for the CD drive and the power light. The screen and keyboard do not work (no caps or num lock lights), so I assume the trackpad/trackpad button doesn't work either. I can't hear anything turn on inside either, no hdd or fans.

    So needless to say, my attempts to do anything related to holding down a key combo during bootup don't work. I've tried a couple different hard drives too, each to no avail.

    I've searched the forums, but it seems most people with a "blank screen boot up" problem can still at least boot from a CD, reset PRAM, hold down the mouse button to remove a disc, etc. My computer doesn't even get this far.

    So, is my macbook done for or is there a fix for this?

    Specs:
    15" MBP, Core i7/2GHz, 8GB RAM, 480GB Crucial M500 SSD
    Remove the battery. Then, attached the power adapter and attempt to power on. Any difference?
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Do you hear any sounds from the machine when you press the power button and the sleep light illuminates?

    No, there is no sound at all.
