Power light comes on, screen never does.
MacBook Pro 15" Core 2 Duo Models A1226 and A1260 Troubleshooting
A friend of mine dropped off an older macbook pro (A1260) that wouldn't turn on. After some troubleshooting I removed the battery, held the power button and then plugged in the ac adapter. It booted up right away!
Now 8 hours later, he comes to pick it up and the same issue recurred, except now it won't resume period. is there a known fix for issues like this?
The power comes on, drive spins up, and the pc heats up quite a bit if I leave it alone, the display just never comes on. I have also tried connecting it to an external display to no avail
Thanks for any tips, I'm not really much of a mac guy but since this didn't seem like an OS rooted issue I took a look at it.
Is this a good question?
