About 1 month before, this situation happened, but it went normal in 1 hour.
This time.. situation hangs there.

I can't start up no screen, I've tried SMC, NVRAM, safe mode, no use, coz it shuts down before those solutions.
And the weird things is that MBP keeps turn on and shut down.... oh my GOD
This is the most werid thing I ever see in my laptop.

Here is the video
2011 Macbook pro 15" - Can't start up - No Screen - Won't wake up ?HELP? - YouTube

Hi, Chuckoir,

Any suggestion?

You know, this is my first MAC...

Well, my instinctive answer, would be to just take it back to Apple.

The fact the screen isn't even coming on, to me, suggests it's rather fudged. However, I know very little when it comes to diagnosing problems or even fixing them, but if it's still within warranty and you haven't spilled any liquids on it, I'm sure Apple would sort you out.

Apologies if that's not the answer you were hoping for.

It's good to know your opinion, no matter good or bad.
Thanks man.
Sure it is within the warranty and I promise there is no liquid or water splashed in it.
But.. I just use it 10 times per month... how can it ....?

Hi,
I am not pretty sure about boot from HD, coz I just use hard disk for booting, no any CD in the cd-rom drive.
