Dropped my mac. Gray display on startup.
I am chandrasekar from India.
I have a MacBook Pro 17"(A1261) which i got in 2007. It was working fine since it suffered a nasty fall recently after which it wouldnt boot. I took it to apple who quoted an equivalent of $2000 for the repair! I then took it to a local technician who tried his hand and now, on powering up, I am able to hear the startup chime but I am met with a plain gray screen(no apple logo).
I tried resetting pram etc. doesn't seem to work.
I inserted the leopard disk. Nothing happened and I am not able to eject the disk.
Targeted firewire mode is not working. the MBP is not getting detected on my mac pro.
My Capslock key is lighting up but volume, brightness et all don't function.
I have to keep the power connected for the laptop to startup. I can hear the internals working by keeping my ears close to the system.
Please help me diagnose this problem. Thanks in advance!
Is this a good question?
