Hi, I have an old 2.4 ghz C2D macbook pro from 2007. Today, it wouldn't wake up from sleep so I did a hard shut down.
When I tried to start it up again, I hear the normal optical drive spin, but the screen remains blank. I don't get to the gray beach ball start up screen at all. The front LED light is on but is not blinking. Also, I don't think my USB ports are working because my external drives do not turn on.
I tried resetting the SMC and the p-RAM but those did not help. From what I've read online, I think it could be a problem with my RAM, but I'm still not sure.
If anyone knows what this problem is, can you please let me know? I don't want to go out and buy new RAM if it turns out to not be the problem. Thanks a lot!
oh, and yes I made sure my screen brightness was all the way up.
