Question about Apple MacBook Pro Notebook
I've tried the SMC reset both ways (pulling the battery and holding the power button for 5 seconds, AND hitting the Control+Option+Left Shift+Power Button). I've reseated the RAM and tested one stick at a time. Still no response when the power button is hit. During the SMC reset the charging light turned green for a second then back to orange, so the buttons seem to be responding but no screen or fans turn on. HELP!
Sounds like a possible power supply issue, or a fuse has blown inside for the power.

SOURCE: MacBook startup problem
To get a disk out of a mac hold the mouse button down whist the the machine is booting up and it should eject automatically.
WIngammon, try this.
hold Command - option P R straight after you turn your mac on. This will reset the PRAM and NVRAM. this might help.
otherwise if you have an original or copied osx install disc try booting up from that by turning on your computer, inserting the disc and then turning it off again. Give it 5-10 secs and then boot up again holding the C key. this should take you a screen similar to the login screen, you will have to choose a language. In the toolbar(top of the screen) you should go to utilities and select disc repair.
I have had this problem with my own macbook and the above things have solved it for me. However its possible that the same symptom my not be caused my the same problem.
Best of luck.
Let me know how it goes.

SOURCE: MacBook won't start up.
If you have your Mac OS X Install disc, insert it into the drive.
Restart the computer and hold down "C" while booting.
Choose your language.
Select "Disk Utility" from the "Utilities" in the menu bar.
Select your Macbook's hard drive in the left sidebar.
Click the "First Aid" tab thats along the top of the viewer window.
Click "Verify Disk" (not verify disk permissions)
If this shows errors click "Repair Disk"
Once completed close the Disk Utility window.
Restart the computer.
If this fails to fix it as well then your next option would most likely be recovering your files from the macbook either by booting into target disk mode (hold down T at startup) and transferring them via a firewire cable, or removing the hard drive and hooking it up to another Mac to get the files. Then do a clean install of Mac OS X using your installation discs.
