My MacBook pro starts up with a black screen, but i haven't found any other threads with anybody that has these symptoms, so I'm not sure what the problem is. The disc drive makes a noise when it starts up, but the chime afterwards never happens. The sleep light in the front immediately dims, but doesn't pulse as if asleep. The light brightens up again if I close the lid, but never reverts to sleep mode like it normally would if I closed the lid. The keys don't respond (the caps lock doesn't light up, for example) but the computer itself gets warm as if in use. I've tried plugging in another display, but that hasn't helped.

MacBook Pro, 15 inch with removable battery
