Hi, Welcome to FixYa


One preferable advice is remove your battary for 2-3 minutes and keep it back.
Not it should turn on normal.


Thanks

    Hi,

    It is clearly a problem with your hard disk. The main methods of treble-shooting are

    1) boot with your DVD which came with your mac machine and use the Disc Utility to check the hard drive. This utility will verify if there is problem with the hard drive.

    2) You can connect your mac machine to another machine and access the hard drive from there. The Firewire target disk mode will help you doing that. Here is the link.

    Also check out this link which suggests all the possilbe treble-shooting methods.


    Thanks

The short answer is buy a pc. Just kidding. So the laptop powers up and seems to run but nothing on the screen correct? You may just need a new lcd. How old is the laptop? It may be covered under warranty depending on its age. Most likely either way unless your very knowledgeable with computers you'll want a professional to perform the repair. Once I have more information I can assist you further.
Thank you,
Lee

Why macbook not turn off blank screen


If the Apple laptop (or desktop) doesn't shut down properly, try pressing and holding in the power button for 3-5 seconds. This will force a shut down. Good idea to wait a few minutes before attempting a restart again.

Won't turn on


The problem in blank white screen is the display (LCD). Send it to a technician for repair. The blinking folder with a question mark is conflict on drivers. Have you installed a software lately? If you do please uninstall it. Maybe that is the cause of having a blank white screen.

Blank screen


Sorry but your lcd backlight needs replacement. Take it to the apple store and see if they'll give you a replacement. If they don't there are third party Macbook Repair services that can fix it for you. There are also free Macbook Repair guide that show you how to fix it yourself. The part is on Ebay.

When I turn my MacBook air on a blank White screen


Leave the Macbook air turned on until the battery goes dead. Then Connect to power and start it up. That should solve the problem. You problem was caused by not letting an update install in full.

My macbook has a blank white screen, and then it showed a flashing file folder with a question mark on it.


Your macbook is not locating your hardrive.
turn off your laptop, insert the Mac OS disc in the drive, and then reboot while holding down the c key to allow it to boot from the OS on the DVD.
Then use the disk utilities application from the desktop menu and to a disk repair on your hard drive and then restart.

When start up the screen is blank, nothing happens


Press the F2 key several times to make sure that the screen brightness is up.
Put your ear down on the laptop on the zone left of the trackpad and below the keyboard and listen for the little whirring and clicking noises of the hard drive. If it is making noises, just walk away for at least 30 minutes and see what happens in that interval.
Look carefully at the screen in good light and make certain that here is no image on it. You could just have a bad backlight.
If so, you can connect the DVI port on the MacBook to a computer monitor or most flatscreen TVs and regain access to the screen until you get the backlight repaired.
You might try that regardless. Even if your display is totally inoperative, the DVI port may still function.
If the drive has stopped making noise and the screen is totally blank, 1. Try starting up the MacBook with the DVD that came with it, and if that doesn't yield anything, 2. Take the MacBook to the Apple Store and ask for a Genius appointment.
