Question about Apple MacBook Pro Notebook
I have a 2 year old Macbook pro that has been working great up until a week ago when it wouldn't start up. I press the power button and hear the smug apple start up sound, a fan kicking on, but nothing on the screen, just black. I reset the SMC and the PRAM and still nothing. My friend says its the logic board which is expensive. I see nothing fried on the board but I'm a newb at that kind of thing so I'm not that sure what to look for. I have read about voltage regualtor chips coming loose and being shimmed on ibooks. Could this be a solution to my problem? Where is the vreg chip on my macbooks board? Thanks in advance.

Thias can also come from a dead hard drive, or a dead backlight (screen).
The best test would be to plug an external monitor to see if something shows up. If yes, that would mean that the backlight doesn't work anymore. If not, then you have an other hardware problem (motherboard, hard drive).
You can check if the hard disk is the problem by removing it. You should then see a flashing question mark and the screen on.
Keep in touch ;)
