    intel macbook wont boot please help
    hey guys, my girl friend has a mac-book and the battery died so we were using it without the battery in, as a desktop and now it will not boot at all when u press power the disk drive boots up then nothing, we tried holding option R T and it will boot to the log in screen but the moment u take your hands off option R T the screen just goes black, the only thing i could think of was that her HD failed, its only 2 years old and in good shape so i dont see why the logic bored would be bad, any ideas? thanks

    Welcome to the Forum. Try doing a SMC reset see if that helps.

    I'd say hard drive before making the leap to logic board. What happens when you boot into Single User Mode? (Cmd + S).
    Just a stupid kid with a computer, so take my advice with a grain of salt if that makes a difference to you.

    Back to my old 2.2GHz C2D MB after selling my MBP and wondering what my next Mac will be :)
    It does sound like the graphics chip which is incorporated into the logic board.
    Have you tried running the Apple hardware test? Intel-based Macs: Using Apple Hardware Test
