Is your MacBook Pro dead? When an issue occurs, use these helpful tips and tricks to fix it.


Your MacBook Pro is dead when it quits unexpectedly with the black screen “of death.” Was it the display, was the gadget dead or was it something else entirely? It is easy to lose track of all of the thoughts in your head. There is no need to worry! We are here to help you fix it.
In other words, what could be the issue?
The problem may be attributable to more than one cause. There may be an issue with the charging cord, the charger may be broken, the adapter may be damaged, or there may be a software or hardware problem with the device.
Also, if your MacBook Pro is not booting up, you may have issues that are causing it. Let us have a look at these possible difficulties and how you may fix some of them.


Have a look at the power supply

To begin, make sure that the charging cable and adapter are intact. To ensure that the Magsafe power adapter is secure in the jack, ensure that it is not loosely connected—other things to note include ensuring that the cable is not damaged. When there is a damaged cable, it could not only harm the charging process but the charging port or battery might also be damaged. Keep in mind that your adapter, charger, and power cord should all be checked and be assured that they aren’t overheating when charging. For your dead MacBook Pro, see if you can use a different power adapter and cable to charge, and then see if it boots up. It is highly likely that the fault is not located in the cable itself, but rather some other issues. Your gadget may not be booting because of a bad DC/charging jack or because your service battery is dead. An accurate diagnosis and resolution of the issue are essential in this scenario.


The SMC should be reset.


To repair specific difficulties with battery, power, and the like, it is recommended that you reset the SMC (also known as System Management Controller). Attempting to charge your MacBook Pro without a certified Apple battery charger will give you a better chance of having a dead MacBook Pro.

To connect the power cord, plug it in, and press and hold the Shift, Ctrl, and Option/Alt keys while simultaneously pressing and holding the power button for 10 to 12 seconds. Finally, release all the keys and then hit the Power button to see if your MacBook will restart. This will fix the minor issues in your power or battery and boot successfully.


Try Resetting the PRAM / NVRAM

When it comes to mending a dead MacBook, a good alternative is resetting the PRAM and NVRAM. This section of the computer’s memory is also known as non-volatile random-access memory (NVRAM) and parameter RAM (PRAM). Resetting your device regularly addresses numerous minor issues that may be interfering with its ability to boot.
Getting started is as simple as holding down the Control, Option (Alt), P, and R buttons simultaneously and then turning on the notebook. Be sure to keep your fingers on the keyboard until the MacBook restarts. Even better, restart it twice. Finally, release the keys simultaneously. If the fault is with the NVRAM/PRAM, your MacBook should restart normally.

In Recovery Mode, use Disk Utility to repair your hard drive.


You may need to do the steps below if your MacBook is not entirely dead but the screen is stuck on a blue or black screen.
  • You should press the Command and R keys at the same time to begin. Once your notebook is powered on, press the Cmd + R keys to make sure they are holding up.
  • Recovery Mode starts up with the Utilities on your MacBook. To proceed, click on the “Disks” icon in the “Utilities” menu, and then find the “notebook’s hard disc” (Macintosh HD) and pick it.
  • Finally, click on the First Aid button. With this update, Disk Utility will find and address faults with your disc. If the errors are located, it will request permission to fix them.

You can use the Recovery Mode to get your Mac back to the last Time Machine backup you created or reinstall/install/reinstall macOS as well.
