How to fix a Mac Computer that won’t turn on

Under some occasions you find it unable to turn on your MacBook Air or MacBook Pro. I realize that you may be really frustrating, but there are some quick measures to look for and turn the Mac back on. There is also a chance that your MacBook is misbehaving, so you may need to carry it through a specialist or sadly get your computer replaced.

1. Check your power connection

Don’t be a cliché: verify the electricity is on and that the Mac is correctly plugged in. Or once the laptop is there, make sure the battery isn’t empty – if it has to charge, giving it a moment to start charging before realizing it won’t work.

2. Try a different power cable or adapter

The fault can lay with the power cable. When you have a buddy who is equipped with a Mac power cord, check to see how to fix the error. If so, it may be an easy workaround that involves a second-hand cable to be sold on eBay (although we warn against buying power cables from third parties that are not manufactured by Apple, because they are far more likely to be unreliable and possibly dangerous).
If you had a power drop recently it might be responsible: your power adapter may have been broken in a spike in demand, so you would need a new power adapter.
Eventually, it is likely that the cable is loose and the issue can be fixed by taking it out and attaching it again. Yet we suspect that it’s going to be that fast.

3.Disconnect all accessories

Remove all the accessories from the Mac. This could be that one of the peripherals triggers the initialization series issues.
Make sure they are correctly mounted and compliant whether you have newly purchased a new hard drive. (If necessary, reinstall the old hard disk or memory to see how that helps.)
When none of these moves functions, it is time to switch to the next level.

4. Perform a Power Cycle

If you do not notice any signs of life, you may do a power loop, which implies that your computer has to restart after electricity has been extinguished.
You will keep the power key for ten seconds on a MacBook. Usually you’ll hear a squeak when the control of the Mac is violently removed.
Unless the Mac is a laptop you must unplug and keep it unplugged for 10 seconds or longer before you plug in and attempt to restart.

5. Check your display

You may have an issue with the monitor, instead of the Mac itself. Let your computer listen to see if it makes any noise during bootup.
Your Mac could switch on but does not boot because you cannot reach the monitor-if that is the case, you obviously have problems with the computer hardware (rather than a wider problem).

6. Boot up your Mac in Safe Mode

Safe Boot restricts the tasks and features on which the Mac concentrates at initialization and allows other diagnoses. It is unusual, but you often have your unfortunate Mac to continue with a Safe Mode successfully and then continue again normally, so everything comes back to hunky-dorkiness.
To reach Safe Mode: Shutdown the Mac and restart it while keeping the Shift key. Safe Mode will take some time to start (if it works). If you can successfully boot your Mac into Safe Boot, it proves that it’s the software issue that prevents your Mac from booting.
To find out which software is misbehaving, you can boot the Mac into Verbose mode. Just reboot your Mac and immediately hold Command + V key combinations. You will see a live report when booting up. And it will stop at the program making your computer stuck at startup. How to get rid of the obstacle?
Boot your computer into Safe Mode one more time, then remove the conflicting programs. After that you can leave Safe Mode by restarting your Mac normally, and it should turn on this time

7. Reset the PRAM / NVRAM

Throughout the days of PowerPC, we addressed the resetting of PRAM. For current Macs, the exact word is NVRAM reset. The term applies to the different memory areas that hold data, including though the computer is shut down, such as volume settings, monitor size and more importantly, which disk to boot from. if your Mac boots into a black screen because of the startup disk selection, resetting NVRAM or PRAM might help.
