I've occationally had problems with the display on my MacBook Pro: sometimes the screen would not turn on. It started the first year I had it, but at the the guy just said "Yeah, I've that problem sometimes too" like it was nothing to bother about
When I'd had the MBP for 2 years the problem became worse. Sometimes only my added display would light up, behaving as if it was my main display. But clicking on Detect displays would bring up MBP's display as well.
But now I can't get any display on at all
I've tried restarting several times. No response in either display.
What can I do?? I've had the MBP for 2 and a half year now.
And if I need to do a complete reinstall, is there any reasonable way to save the files?
QUOTE Thanks
