I'll begin this by saying in hindsite I could have handled this a better way but it is what it is.


My white 2007 macbook fell off the bed (landed flat on the bottom on a thick rug) about a year ago and it worked fine until the battery died and I went to turn it on again. It would turn on but wouldn't go past the gray "loading" screen. Now it doesn't turn on at all. What do I need to replace? When it first happened I had a Mac IT guy (for a business, not for Apple) check it out and he said that all of the data was there I just needed to replace the OS (Snow Leopard?) However, now a year later it doesn't turn on at all. It's not the battery I don't think, the battery was only a few months old. I didn't take care of this at first because I didn't know anything about fixing things and erronously thought I would have to pay half a thousand to fix - now I know I can easily do most of it myself. I'm assuming it's the internal hard drive but I'm no expert. Thanks for your help.

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.6)
