    Hey, I'm having an issue with my Macbook Pro not booting. I uploaded a video of the issue to youtube, Macbook Pro not booting up - YouTube. Basically when hit the power button nothing happens, when I hold down the power button the fans and hard drive will sound like it's starting up, but then it stops and the sleep indicator will flash a number of times.
    Thanks

    Only the most important piece of information...HOW MANY TIMES

    On older MACs, the flashes meant (swap beep for flash)

    1 beep = no RAM installed
    2 beeps = incompatible RAM types
    3 beeps = no good banks
    4 beeps = no good boot images in the boot ROM (and/or bad sys config block)
    5 beeps = processor is not usable
