Why did you replace the logic board and track pad? Sounds like damage to the HD, try booting from the Install Disk.

Logic board was bad, then trackpad didnt work so I also replaced but never worked so used mouse til this happened, thot must be battery so replaced that and takes a charge well, starts up, HD & fan start, apple spinning icon w/ load bar starts goin then just shuts off??

The newer machines don't come with a DVD disk. Boot up holding down the "r" key to run a repair on the hard drive.

Held down 'r' on boot up-nothin. No F-key or command?
