hello

one day my old macbook pro running on snow leopard decided not to start. now when i turn it

on the light on the latch comes on, it bongs........ but screen stays black. i hear the disc and fans,

and the keys will light up.... but nothing else. i'm an old man- i don't get about anymore. this

thing became pretty much my only way to stay in touch with the word.  this was  second hand

machine.... but i've been using it for a while. i can't buy a new one....neither can i get someone

to repair it..... come to think of it.... if i could afford a repair.... i can buy a new one....they charge  lot.

no matter what i tried,  doing option+apple key+P+R, ctrl+apple+power button and hold,

unplug + take out battery wait 15 sec, plug it it +put back the battery and start. (it didn't) could someone

tell me something i haven't tried and help me get it going--so i can return the borrowed one?   thank you.


MacBook Pro, iOS 6.1.4
