Power up, Chime, and then nothing
My A1342 will power up and I get the "chime" when I press the power button. The screen is dark, but it appears to be receiving power as the backlight works and the screen isn't black or blank as if appearing not to receive power. Instead the screen is dark. I'm not sure I'm explaining this correctly but I feel that the screen is not the problem (it's like a television that isn't receiving an input signal).
Has anyone run into this before? I'm not a "Mac" person so I'm not sure what the chime indicates. It's almost as if the internal hard drive isn't booting as I see no bios output or anything on the screen.
