Hello all,


I have a issue with my macbook pro.

It only starts if you tilt it at a certain angle.

I have had it work and boot up normally before of I find the right angle and put a book under it.

If its not at an angle it does not boot, I can hear the Fans and th HDD start up and when it's st an angle,

Or I press it st that spot, the sleep light comes on, the DVD drive starts up and everything is fine. When I let go, it shuts off. Only, if I am

Lucky it will stay on.
