Hey ALL. I have a problem with my macbook which i think i can link to the numerous installations and deletions of windows xp via bootcamp. I noticed my computer was experiencing some disk errors so i fixed it with disk utility. Now one day i was watching a movie via mini dvi out to tv. and afterwards i closed the lid and let my computer sleep. next day i woke up and i noticed my screen wouldn't turn on. so i shut my computer off and it will boot without the startup sound and no screen at all. just a black screen. I even inserted the tiger cd and still nothing. How bad is this? i plan to take it to this mac store in ottawa to try and get it fixed? but i want to know some peoples opinions on what could be wrong.

On another forum someone mentioned it could be a faulty hard drive.. im hoping this is the case because i noticed some disk errors a few days prior when i tried installing bootcamp. I also have tried launching from the installer by pressing C still no screen just the white sleep light glows and random cd and computer sounds not the typical startup sound . please help!

If the computer won't boot with the Operating System DVD in the drive while you're pressing "C" you probably have a faulty logic board. If the 'book is new, you're under warranty.

In any case, you should get to a Genius Bar as soon as possible.

As an aside, in the future you might want to consider using a more helpful subject line in your postings, such as "MacBook Won't Boot."

Good luck!

lol... You should have mentioned that in your first post...

THAT may your problem.... Make sure the RAM is seated properly (all the way).. then reboot. If you are still having problems... Install your OLD RAM and reboot... if it boots up fine with the OLD RAM, then you have Bad RAM from Corsair.... If it still does not boot properly... It very well might be your logic board as you stated above.

Welcome to the forums!
