    My mac's screen isn't working but there's sound. I want to go to PMC in SM North Edsa to ask them about it but is there some "troubleshooting" that I can do? My mac died and when I powered it up the sound is working but nothing is showing on the screen. Any thoughts? Thanks! :):):)

    How long have you had your mac? have you tried running your mac with an external monitor?

    let me answer that for you... it's an article number in the apple website about video issues for MB's / MBP's

    http://support.apple.com/kb/TS2377

    here's the resolution based on the site:

    Here's the reason why.. :)

    better bring it to Apple's service centre and let them make diagnostic procedure. it should only take a day to know the problem.

    maybe you just accidentally set your brightness level to the lowest point? that will render your screen black. try pressing the "increase brightness" button. if that's not it, then it's probably the videocard as the others mentioned.

    So this the "ticking Time-bomb" that people were talking about when it comes to the 8600GT.
