Macbook Screen not working.

When I turn on my Macbook the screen gradually turns white. I can't see the log in or anything. I can use my laptop with an external monitor. I tried resetting the pram by pressing command, option, p, r, when I first restart it, but it doesn't solve the problem. I've had this problem for a couple of months now and it doesn't seem to get better or worse. Can anyone help?

This issue is usually cause by a defective LCD screen. You can try to repair the screen yourself using an Apple Tablet Repair Guide or send it to a third party service Apple Tablet Repair.

Macbook turning on difficulties.


Try these steps:

1.) With the machine OFF, hold down a SHIFT key and power the machine on. Continue holding SHIFT for about a minute. This is called Safe Mode. This will test your disk, clear caches, and disable extensions. It probably will take longer to load.

2.) If your Mac boots all the way to the Desktop normally, click the Apple menu (top, left corner of screen) and click "Shut Down".

3.) Once it has shut down, wait a few seconds and power it back on (NO SHIFT key this time).

4.) If it boots, it should be okay. If not, you may have to reinstall your operating system.

To Reinstall Mac OS X: WARNING: There is a _slight_ risk of loss of your data (pictures, documents, etc.) when reinstalling your operating system.

1.) You'll need the system disc(s) that came with your Mac. Put disc 1 (if there are more than one) into the drive. Hold down the power button to turn the machine off if necessary. Put the disc in and turn it on *while holding down the C key* (to boot from "CD" -- actually DVD). Look for an "Options" button, depending on which version of Mac OS X you have. Click it. Select "Archive and Install" and follow the prompts. (If you have 10.6 "Snow Leopard", you won't find an "Options" button. It will "Archive and Install" automatically.

2.) Once you have reinstalled the operating system, it should start normally.

Good Luck! Please let us know if you continue to have problems.

InstallatIon of Mac OS X 10.4.10


White screen issues on your Macbook are more often than not, an indication that you may have a connected peripheral or device which may be hindering your Macbook's normal start up function

What you need to do first, is remove all peripherals from (printers, scanners, USB drives etc.) and then reboot your Macbook.

If your Macbook starts up normally without a white screen, leave all the peripherals disconnected and see if you can proceed to run all of your software updates, in Apple menu>Software Updates, first, including updating to the final version of Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger, 10.4.11.

Once all of your updates are completed, then you will need to go through a process of elimination by connecting one peripheral at a time, then properly shutting down and restarting your Macbook with each device, to see if your Macbook goes to a White screen.

Depending on the number of peripherals you have normally connected to your Macbook, this may seem a little tedious at first. But considering how bothersome a White screen is, it will be worth it solving the mystery of which peripheral is causing the white screen and failure to boot up normally.

If it turns out that one of the devices you had connected was in fact, causing the white screen, this will be the opportunity for to research online, visiting the affected device's manufacturer's website or even use Google, to confirm if there are any known issues and/or updates available to address that issue.

There are other variables which can come into view with a white screen issue, but this is a good way to start in terms of working toward a viable solution to this issue with your Macbook.

I hope this helps, let me know if you have more questions.

Regards,

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.

Macbook screen goes black after I log in.


Since the screen does turn on at the login page, I would say that it doesn't seem as though anything is physically wrong with your computer. It sounds to me like it's a software issue. Either get someone to try and reinstall your video drivers or to back-up your documents, files, etc., format the hard drive, and reinstall a fresh copy of Mac OS.

Dark Screen


Try connecting to an external monitor. If the monitor displays correctly, then the problem is with either the inverter or the screen.

Macbook - screen white/blank after turning on


Sounds like it could be a corrupted OS; have you tried forcing it to start up with the OS disk, holding down the 'C' key? That's the first place to start...

If it won't start up like that, you probably have a hardware problem. (You can get excellent troubleshooting guidance at: http://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Mac/ ) depending on your level of geekness, and assuming the warranty is expired?

Good luck
