Investigations of this bug showed the problem appeared to be rooted in the handling of the dual graphics cards in MacBook Pro models from 2010, and while Apple to address the problem, this update did not help all who were experiencing it. I can hear the chime though; I'm not sure if that means anything. A screen replacement will cost an arm and a leg. Glad to hear you've gotten it taken care of and no issues so far. I am going to solder them on and see if that solves the problem.

Also, I tried to do the 'hold down option-command-R-P'-thing but it hasn't solved the problem.

This restarted the computer in Safe Mode, with the screen visible again. I opened it up, ejected the ram, and cleaned the fans and tried startup again, but again no response.

I don't know if it's heat related by resting my hand there or slight pressure.
