Powers on with black screen - no boot - drives/fan run
Bought a macbook pro A1260 without hd. Said it didn't run, had no video. I tried booting it with an external hard drive, and putting one properly in the hd bay. Both cases, it would power up the fans, the optical drive cycles, the hd would spin. I tried holding down the Option key to make it give me a choice of drives to start from, but it doesn't get that far. I can't get the screen to wake up by trying to reset the PRAM or the SMC.
Any ideas, anyone?
Is this a good question?
