My AC adaptor went bad so we bought a ne :(w one.  It wouldn't charge my laptop and the battery died.  We got a new adaptor but now the laptop won't boot up.  The screen is black...the fan is working and the power light comes on

But that us it!  Help!!    :)

uum, ok this sometimes happens to me, but i am on windows vista, but it may work, turn your laptop off, then wait 10 seconds, then take our your battery pack, then put it back in after 1 minute, then turn it on, this is all with the charger out.

It sounds to me as if it's a hardware problem. Well the laptop should work without the AC Adaptor, but it seems to be as if there's a fault with the battery. I would personally look towards replacing the battery, and if it continues you know it isn't the battery.

 

Is your Macbook under warranty still? You could probably take it back to Apple, and they'd take a look at the hardware for you :)

if you put your hand normally to right of your laptop, but may be different for yours, but is the hard drive revving up, should feel a little vibration and may hear a little noise, which sounds like when you put a dvd in the dvd Drive. that is just going to check see if your hard drive is starting up at all :)

errrm maybe the screen is broken, or the cable that connects the monitor to the mobo has broken or come loose also like someone else said is there any bleeps?

So there's power to it? Do you hear it bleeping when you turn it on? It could just be a problem with the screen or your battery :)

 

Can you try an external screen, plug another one in via VGA.

This is a good idea

I would also suggest you try to plug your laptop to any external screen, (Btw, if you don't have any other computer, you may check behind your TV, on some you can plug an VGA cable)

 

If your computer boot normally on your external screen, then your current laptop screen is dead  :neutral:

Test 1: Plug it into a different monitor or TV that supports PC input (using a VGA cable)

Test 2: Remove the battery, and see if it will run simply off the mains.

Test 3: Take out the battery and remove the mains cable. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds. This will remove residual charge inside the laptop. Try again.

 

If none of the above work, they you may have an underlying hardware fault, which could range from faulty RAM, broken LCD, broken back light, or more.
