Macbook Pro did not boot and the LED in the charger plug did not light.
Disconnected the battery, of which the owner said it was only 3% full, from the motherboard by pulling up the battery connector.
Charged the battery brutally with a lab power supply (13V 500 mA current limit) for a few hours, carefully watching that the battery did not warm up.
Reconnected the battery, the Mac booted normally and could be charged further with the normal charger.

When you mentioned in the issue detail, that your Macbook portable "is messed up", without more details, I honestly cannot tell to what extent you are having issues with your Macbook.

So to better assist you, I am going to provide a few troubleshooting steps to see if this can help with your Macbook's rebooting up to the desktop normally.

Procedure #1
Here are some steps you can try to resolve the issue:
• First, hold in your power button for approximately 10 seconds to do a hard shutdown.

• Once your Mac is shutdown, you will need to perform what is called a PRAM reset (Parameter RAM)
This should help with the freezing issue:

• Locate the following keys on the keyboard: Command, Option, P, and R. You will need to hold these keys down simultaneously .

• Turn on the computer.
• Press and hold the Command-Option-P-R keys. You must press this key combination before the gray screen appears.

• Now, hold the keys down until the computer restarts and you hear the startup sound for the third time.

• Release the keys and allow the Macbook to start up.

If the PRAM reset still does not help, try this second procedure below.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Procedure #2

-SMC RESET-
The System Management Controller is an integrated circuit (computer chip) that is usually on the logic board of your Mac portable.

It is responsible for power management of the computer. It controls backlighting, hard disk spin down, sleep and wake, some charging aspects, trackpad control, and some input/output as it relates to the computer sleeping.

Shut down the computer.
• Disconnect the MagSafe power adapter from the computer, if it's connected.
• Remove the battery.
• Press and hold the power button for 5 seconds.
• Release the power button.
• Reconnect the battery and MagSafe power adapter.
• Press the power button to turn on the computer.
------------------------------------------------------------------
Give this a try and you should be able to boot up normally. If not, let me know.

Thanks!

Regards,

My apple macbook air will not reboot. it turns on but does not reboot completely then it shuts down and tries to reboot again and again. apple logo appears and the spinning icon rotates but never goes...


It may be a possibility that the hard drive has gone bad or a connection to the hard drive. The spinning wheel and apple signify the kernel boot, or in other words, the process in which the machine finds the hd and os/software.. you need to bring your machine into an authorized repair center to have a system diagnosis to verify that no other parts of the machine are bad. That model is notorious for having bad hd's.

How to REBOOT an Apple iBookG4?


Reboot is the term for shutting your laptop off and restarting it. as apposed to leaving your laptop running or in standby at all times.
The easiest way to restart is go to the Apple Menu in the top left corner and selecting Restart. You will be asked if you really want to restart.

The other way is to push the power button once and it will bring up the window asking if you want to shut down or restart.

I have a apple's ibook f4 laptop,and how can i open its cmos settings


Sorry, but Mac laptops and desktops do not have "CMOS" or "BIOS" settings to mess with.
They do have something called the PRAM that can be reset on reboot, but this depends on the type of problem or issue you're trying to address in "CMOS".

I cant unlock my apple laptop


first, reboot your computer. then, hold down the apple key and the "s" key after you have heard the chime. when you get the text prompt enter these terminal commands to make a new administrator account (be sure to hit return or enter after each line):
  • mount -uw /
  • rm /var/db/.AppleSetupDone
  • shutdown -h now
after rebooting your computer, you should have a new administrator account. you can then proceed to delete the old one and you're set

hope this helps ;-)

Problems with laptop keyboard


Sounds like some of the keyboard settings have gotten changed. Begin by checking the System Parameters for Keyboard/Mice and verify that these are as follows:

Caps Lock = Caps Lock
Control Key = Control Key
Option Key = Option Key
Command = Command

If they are not, just press the RESTORE DEFAULTS setting and LOCK your Systems Parameter Page before closing it. Reboot your system and check keyboard operation.

Hope this helps,

Keith
