Hardware issue

f your MacBook is showing nothing but a black screen, or you see nothing but a spinning disk or a flashing folder or if your Mac has died and won’t turn at all then there are ways to restart your computer to get it working again. One easy way is to hold down the power button for five seconds and then release it, wait twenty seconds and press the power button again. Now wait for thirty seconds and then press the power button a third time. After doing this and nothing else has happened then follow on with a full shutdown by holding down shift+control+option keys together with pressing the power key for 10 seconds followed by hitting restart from boot menu.

One method of troubleshooting a Mac that won’t turn on is to reset the System Management Controller. The System Management Controller is responsible for managing many different low-level functions on your Mac, and if it’s not working properly, it can cause all sorts of problems. To reset the System Management Controller, you’ll need to do the following:

1. Shut down your Mac.

2. Unplug all external devices from your Mac, including any USB devices, Ethernet cables, printers, and so on.

3. Wait at least 15 seconds before plugging everything back in again.

4. Turn on your Mac and see if it works now. If it doesn’t, move on to the next step.

If resetting the System Management Controller doesn’t fix your problem, you can try resetting the PRAM or NVRAM on your Mac. These are special kinds of memory that store things like your computer’s startup disk selection and system timezone information. Resetting them can sometimes fix strange issues with startup disks and audio volume settings being forgotten after a restart or shutdown.”
