My screen froze along with my mouse and i was forced to shut down the computer. After turning it off, it will not turn back on again. The light on the front of it (I think it has something do to with the Hard drive) will turn on for about 8 seconds then turn off with a loud click. I have tried the PRAM reset, the SMC reset, an dtried booting it up on safe mode and nothing seemed to work. The closest Apple Store/Genius Bar is 1.5 hours away from me and I don't have a back up of my data.


MacBook Pro 15'' (mid 2010)

500gb memory

everything else is stock

It has the OS of what was preinstalled at the time (I believe it was 10.6 Snow Leopard)




hopefully this is enough information to point me in the right direction.

MacBook Pro (15-inch Mid 2010), Mac OS X (10.6.8), the OS is an educated guess
