    Unhappy MBP [mid 2010 model] cannot turn on after died randomly during restoring from backup
    Hi guys,

    I installed a new SSD (Samsung 840 Pro, 256GB) and 8GB of RAM to my MBP [mid 2010 model].
    I also bought an optical bay so I have my original HDD sitting in the original optical drive position now.
    After I did all the hardware installation, I turned my MBP on and formatted the new SSD to apple journaled format,
    Then, I restarted my MBP trying to restore data from my backup to the SSD.
    Everything went well, but it suddenly went off when the restore reached about 25%.
    My MBP cannot turn on afterwards.

    The light on my MagSafe connector was green, but the battery indicator on the side of MBP only had 1 light in the middle being bright.

    Anyone ever got this problem ?
    And any suggestion on how should I fix this ?

    Thanks!!

    Repait attempts
    I googled some solutions and none of those worked.
    I have :
    (1) switch my RAMs to the original one (not worked)
    (2) unplug the battery and tried to turn on the MBP with power from wallplug (not worked)

    Also, I cannot hear any sound (fan, original HDD) when I pressed the power button

    Specs:

    Press and hold the power button see if you get a long tone.

    Put all of the Apple hardware back in the machine and see if the mac shows any signs of life.

    I just did that, but the problem is still there.

    Does anyone know that if it is a dead fan, would that affect the power ? like having trouble charging the battery ?

    My battery didn't seem to be charged even if I connect the MagSafe adapter

    Anything is possible. Is it still in warranty? Contact apple and have them check it out. See if you have a local certified apple service provider or apple store.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I think that's the only thing I can try next.
