I've got a late 2007 MacBook Pro that got a new HD under warranty in late 2008. It's worked great through last night until this morning. This am, when I turn it on (fully charged and plugged in), it won't boot. The machine makes a little noise, then the sleep light comes on. It never even gets to the "chime" to show that the system is loading.

I've tried the following:

Reset the PRAM - it won't do it
Start in safe mode - it won't do it
Startup from Install disk - it won't do it
Access the drive in firewire Target mode - it won't do it
Reset the SMC - no change

All it does, is turn on the sleep light, spin the DVD drive (because I put the install DVD in) and nothing else.

Any ideas?

I have a Time Machine Backup that is 2-3 weeks old, but I'm still likely to lose some of my photos, emails, etc, if this is a hard drive again.

Please help!
