My 15"MBP, less than a year old but pre-retina display model shut down today while it was powered up but idle.  I powered it back on, however now it won't boot.  I have run through everything suggested here:  http://support.apple.com/kb/TS2570 without sucess.  The problem I am having is that I can't get the computer to boot to a 10.4.8 or to 10.6.3 system DVDs or to a 10.6 retail version.  The computer just sits there at the Apple logo forever.  It won't do a Network boot either, the Earth logo flashes mutliple times then I get an Apple logo with status bar beneath it.  The status bar gets to about 30% then disappears, after which the computer powers off.  It is totally stock, never had the case open.  Any ideas would be appreciated.





MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5)
