I went on holiday and left my Mac on. When I returned the on button was glimmering (as usual) but the Mac would not respond. I forced quit by pressing the startup button. After it turned off, it has not started up again. What I get is the following: After pressing the button, the button briefly turns yellow (< 1 sec), there is a crackle sound, and then it turns off. The monitor never turns on, although there is a brief static sound. I have a good electrical connection. I've tried the button tricks to no avail. I tried to slot load a CD, but it does not take (a lot of resistance and I don't want to force it). I had an external drive that is fine (Thank goodness for this file backup!).<br>
