So, turning on my Macbook yields all the symptoms of a computer with no battery power (no harddrive spinning, capslock light not working, no display) except for one thing. The little white light on the front turns on. Then a few seconds later the force shutdown noise goes off and the white light shuts off. Then if I try again, the white light will stay on, but the computer still won't turn on.


I forgot to mention, I tried resetting the PRAM and the SMC, but I can't really tell if I accomplished doing either. Regardless, they didn't work anyway.
