Black screen

My 2007 macbook pro is kaput :(
stuck on black screen, keyboard not responding, no power from USB or others.
Start fine, can hear the drive spin but thats it.

Went to a mac shop, told me motherboard gone, 430 to fix :(

Managed to get a mackbook white, should be here tuesday. What will be the best way to get everything from my Pro to macbook ? (photo, pics, documents)

If to hard will give it to the shop to do it

thanks for your help

Could be the screen has gone.

Does it make the usual startup chime?

Can you connect a second monitor and see a screen?

If you can't see anything on another display you can get an case to put internal drives in externally. Sorry if that sounds ridiculous bur you can pick them up at OWC( and they work excellent for someone in your situation.

no chime, no sound.
only the drive starting, thats all i can do and hear.

My friend has the same mbp with the same issue. she took it to the apple store and got a new logic board for $400 or so.
