Hi all,

My first post!

I recently returned from holiday and now my Macbook won't start. The Apple logo appears then disappears and nothing else happens. The "waiting" symbol appears then disappears, then after a while never appears.

The backlight stays on.

I suspect a hardware problem hence my post to this forum.

The Macbook is a white 13" early 2008 model.

Any ideas or assistance would be greatly appreciated.

QUOTE Thanks
