The MBP makes no noise after this.  I can't recall ever dropping it.


I purchased it in Jan 2011 (so I'm guessing it's a 2010 model?  No idea.  Has black keys & new, slim charger!)


Happens when I've turned it off and on & when I restart.


What do you think the problem is most likely to be?


I've had it over a year now so my Apple warranty is already up.  I got it from John Lewis though, who give you 2 years warranty. 


Both John Lewis & Apple stores are 1-2 hours away from where I live now.


Should I  - 


a) visit the Genius bar and hope they can fix it there and then? What does Genius tend to cost & can it be quick?

b) take back to John Lewis (and I guess they'll fix it for free under warranty but take a zillion years!)

c) find a repair shop where I live, who will look at it quicker but may also cost and arm and a leg?

d) any other suggetions?  Maybe never turn the laptop off again ;-)


Thanks in advance for any help/advice/tips/solutions!
