I fixed this issue, I too had the same problem. Here is how I did it.

1) Reboot and press F8
2) Select "Repair my computer"
3) Select the keyboard layout and lanugage
4) When you reach system recovery tools, select System restore.
5) Select the restore point when it was working fine and restart the computer.

That's it....

If you do not have the system restore points, try startup repair.

Black screen on startup for macbook bro

It may be a problem with your light behind the screen or the driver's that produce the energy to light it up. Sounds like a hardware problem to me.

Macbook Air keeps beeping three short beeps in a loop

I need more info on which model Macbook air you have. You can try to reset the smc and pram
but three beeps is often memory related .
Depends on the model you have whether or not the RAM is removable.

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.

The screen on my macbook pro keeps turning off instantaniously. The laptop its self is still on, though the screen just goes black.

I think your macbook is running on power save mode. This will turn your screen black (off) after few minutes of no interaction with the computer or if your PC is on idle.

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.

My MacBook won't turn on!!!

If it is repeatedly beeping it sounds like a memory issue. you should try removing your memory one stick at a time and attempting to reboot.(remove one try to start, replace, remove other try to start). If it doesn't work with either stick try using a "known to be good" or new stick of memory and see if it starts. Here is a link explaining how to remove and change/upgrade your memory. Very simple really, involves removing the battery and removing a plate with three screws in it.

Macbook screen goes black after I log in.

Since the screen does turn on at the login page, I would say that it doesn't seem as though anything is physically wrong with your computer. It sounds to me like it's a software issue. Either get someone to try and reinstall your video drivers or to back-up your documents, files, etc., format the hard drive, and reinstall a fresh copy of Mac OS.
