I am new to Apple/Mac products. I recently bought an iPad and liked it so much mt epiphany was that this must be why Mac users are so loyal to Apple products. So I bought a used Mac Pro on EBAY, received the unit in good condition, set it up and booted. after I got it online I discovered it was due for a software update. No problem. I followed the software update icon, downloaded 4 updates and began the 2 hour download. When the download completed I clicked to install and left the room. when I returned the screen was blank. I grabbed the mouse in an attempt to "wake it up". The fans kicked on and it sounded like a jet taking off bot the screen remained blank. It has not booted since. Any ideas on how to recover?
