Have you tried plugging in an external monitor?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
A MacBook is a laptop. I don't see how I can plug in an external monitor. This is not a good answer to my question. Sorry. While I was waiting I downloaded the MacBook manual (using another computer), fiddled with my computer and it somehow turned on. I think I will get it serviced.

Thanks so much for your help. I know it was a tough question, but I cannot accept your answer as being a useful one.
