MacBook makes startup noise, but doesn't power on, battery charged
Hi, i'm having an issue with my macbook pro 17. I have fully charged the battery, yet there is no light in the back. The adapter displays a green light, tried with a few different ones, all indicate that my battery is charged..yet I can't see the light in the back at all..When I try to start it, it sounds like the harddrive is working but after a few seconds just stays making the same attempting noise to start up..Basically sounding like it's in the process, but it wont start...screen stays black the whole time..I don't know what could be wrong with it :( Please help
Es esta una buena pregunta?
Do you hear the apple chime at startup or are you only hearing the hard drive spin up?
Have you thought of hooking an external display up to the mbp?

is it okay to hear a start up chime and drive noise ??

I have similar issue - but I have a solid state drive so its not the disk spinning. I hear a feint mechanical sounds almost like a groan sound repeatedly as it tries to start up. I do not hear the chime at all. Screen stays black. Then I push the power button once a cycle and after several tries it "catches", the screen lights up and it gets to the login screen after saying it restarted after a 'problem'.

What do you mean you push the power button once a cycle and after several tries it catches? I am currently having the exact same issue as you (upgraded to a solid state drive and more RAM a year ago), and when I power on I hear a fan or mechanical sound but screen stays black. I never hear the chime. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I know Apple doesn't have the customer service it use to but I still love my MacBook.
