i pulled the hard drive and stuck it in an external and it booted right up with my mac mini. So it is not the hd's fault which leaves the question what is??
MBP was running with no battery as i am currently using it as a desktop 24/7 bc the screen broke.
I think you've got your question and answer right here. What trauma broke the MBP's screen? Whatever it was, I think that something else was damaged as well. I recently dropped a MBP, and it continued working for about a month, then just died out of the blue.
If the machine wouldn't boot from a hard drive that 1) it used to boot from and 2) can still boot a different machine, it's got to be a hardware problem. Call Apple for service.17" MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.4)
