I've got a MacBook Pro early 2008, everything worked fine until recently. The machine was shut down for a few days and thereafter won't boot at all. When I press the power button three things happen: the power indicator light goes on, the cd drive does some self test (typical cd drive noise on power-up) and the fan starts. All normal. Unfortunately it doesn't go any further than that. I've tried the NVRAM reset, the SMC reset and checked many other pages to find a possible cause. The battery is working normally, slowly discharging at a normal rate when it's off all the time now. The charger looks ok, charging works normally. Nothing seems to help. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

MacBook Pro (15-inch Early 2008), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
