I have a brand new Macpro that my teens got for xmas, used it 1 day and the screen stays black, I can hear the fan but the screen shows nothing.

When you press the power button do you hear a chime. If you do your monitor cable is probably loose. If you do not hear a chime there is a physical problem with the computer and you should make and appointment with the apple store to have it checked out.

When I power up my PowerBook G4, I hear the startup chime but the screen stays black, nothing happens!! Is my screen turned off or something?

It seems likely that the PMU (Power Management Unit) has failed and needs to be reset. There are comprehensive instructions on how to do this at the apple support site. Apple Support: PMU reset

I have a macbook that is a year and 1/2 old. i went to turn it on today and the screen stayed black and it makes loud beeps. why is this happening?

Does it should be the battery or adapter for MacBook have some matter?Oh,it shouldn't be, it must beause the Fan of CPU or Other Fans of your MacBook Motherboards will wear out! You'd better clear and maintain it.

My macbook won't turn on. Instead the screen stays black and a loud beeping noise comes one until i turn it off. What to do? I've already tried command contrl R/P and it still doesn't work.

Tones before the Happy Mac or Apple logo means that during the start up process (when Mac checks Hardware) it found something wrong. I have seen this with bad memory, and crashed Hard Drives.
Insert the original CD that come with the machine and hold down the C key and then hit the power button.
Then try to reinstall operating system.
All your data will be there. You may need to enter program serial numbers again but Music. Docs etc should still be there.

You posted this problem in an Apple MacBook forum, which is why nobody has gotten back to you.
From the few symptoms you describe, I would suspect you have a damaged LCD panel or damaged inverter in your laptop.

My Apple screen stays black!!!!!

If you hear the fan spinning and the screen stays blank chances are very good that the video chip on your logic board has failed. That was a common issue with many Apple laptops of that generation.
Before you give up on it however try resetting the power manager and reseating the RAM. Below is a link to instructions on how to reset the power manager on a powerbook.

Apple ibook crashed when on MS Word. Black screen fan running???

Sounds like you have a problem with the logic board. This appears to be a common problem with iBook G4 related to the fit of the logic board (ie motherboard) within the case.If you were to take it to apple store the likely fix would be to replace the entire logic board which is very expensive and probably not fiscally sound on a 5 year old machine. Another option would be to try to fix it yourself. If you are feeling brave you can dissemble the laptop and attempt to shimmy the logic board back into position.

Here's a link that detail the approach. This guy had success on two ibooks that had the same problem and they have been working for 2 years since he did his repair
Also, here is a link to a forum that may offer you a few more approaches to solving your problem. iBook G4 won't boot up - fan running & black screen - AppleNova Forums

Hope this helps, good luck!
