I am having MacBook Pro 3 yrs old and today while I was watching some movie on it suddenly it got power off and when I am trying to start it, it's power button is not working even the round button on external left side is not showing battery lights. But when I connect it to chrger then Charger only gives green light and even the external round button only shown 4 green lights (if charger connected). I don't know what to do now

Sounds like you need a #1SMC Reset
1. SMC reset
>>Instructions to reset SMC
Disconnect other non-Apple and external hardware except (if applicable) a mouse and keyboard until your finished repairing your machine.
Problems solved: Fans blowing with no activity, machine is not booting, power button pressed and nothing happens, problems with indicators, Magsafe has wrong lights, battery is not charging, monitor and graphics issues etc.  If the battery is not charged (from like letting it sleep too long), let the Mac charge up awhile afterwards.
Will not hurt the machine resetting if it's not broken.
Other related hardware problems (optional):
Check battery status: Hold option/alt key down while clicking on the battery icon in the menu bar, top right corner.
Magsafe: Use the correct/matching power supply charger with your Mac, not a less powered one from another Mac.

    I have a new mac book pro. Will my old jam packs work with the new garageband?

    I have same problem, been using a macbook 13" for nearly 9 years but it was failing so I bought a macbook pro 15" and after having problems and error messages when trying to download loops ( I finally went to the App Store and opened garageband from there which install some loops), it finally downloaded some but not all the loops that my jam packs had, also I have tons of non-apple loops that I purchased over the years but I want to know if they will work on my new mac ?

  • Two questions, does resetting the Mac Book Pro late 2008 speed up after reset? Also, do i need to remove my WLAN router and get only a plain MODEM when setting up my AIR PORT time machine?

    Two questions, does resetting my Mac Book Pro late 2008 speed up after resetting? Also, do i need to get rid of my WLAN router to make my AIR PORT time capsule work?
    Am grateful for any answers...its a 15,4"...
    Will soon buy a new one, is battery better on 13 than 15 "?
    Have a great day...

    If you mean restoring OS X, that won't necessarily have any effect on speed.
    Not enough free space on the startup disk can slow your Mac down.
    Click your Apple menu  top left in your screen. From the drop down menu click About This Mac > More Info > Storage
    Make sure there's at least 15% free disk space.

    No need for the WLAN router with AirPort Time Capsule.

  • Hi, I have an issue with my Mac Book Pro 15 Inch Mid 2010. I have installed Windows 8.1 operating system during week end and only windows is opening when I log in the mac. I don't know how to switch back to apple OS. Can some one please help?

    Windows 8.1 installed on my Mac and now I am not able to open Apple OS. Mac is opening straight windows with out an option to open Apple OS. My Mac is running on the latest Yosemite OS.

    Please also see Boot Camp: Set the default operating system.

  • All of my Iphone stopped working on the left side so i thought i would restore it but when i did it wont connect back up to itunes so i can get everything baack, it wont even turn back on:( - someone please help!

    someone please help me out, i really need my phone:(!

    The update did not do anything.
    AT&T cannot and will not do anything, they do not provide support for iPhones, Apple does.
    The issue is not with the iPhone or iOS if you've reset network settings and tried forgetting the Wi-Fi Network, it is specific to the network.
    Check the settings on the router, try disabling the security settings first... that will clarify the issue is not with the device but rather the Network.

  • I get the bar to say "running on reserve power" but when I plug in the charger it has 40% or more showing.  Any ideas?

    This problem has developed all of a sudden.  I unplugged the computer from the charger and within minutes I got the message "Running on Reserve Power."  When I plugged it in the battery percentage read 80%.  After  few minutes the green light on the charger was lit.  The next day whne I got the same message I plugged it in and it showed 44%.  Is this a battery issue?  Or something else?

    How old is your battery?
    How many charge cycles does it have?
    And, FYI, your question concerns your laptop, but you asked your question in the iMac forum.

    my desktop is not working when i open it all it does is show the color weal and it never gos away on my mac book pro how do i fix it?

    It means, tentatively, that system files are missing or damaged and you will have to reinstall Snow Leopard. See the following:
    Reinstall OS X without erasing the drive
    Do the following:
    1. Repair the Hard Drive and Permissions
    Boot from your Snow Leopard Installer disc. After the installer loads select your language and click on the Continue button. When the menu bar appears select Disk Utility from the Utilities menu. After DU loads select your hard drive entry (mfgr.'s ID and drive size) from the the left side list.  In the DU status area you will see an entry for the S.M.A.R.T. status of the hard drive.  If it does not say "Verified" then the hard drive is failing or failed. (SMART status is not reported on external Firewire or USB drives.) If the drive is "Verified" then select your OS X volume from the list on the left (sub-entry below the drive entry,) click on the First Aid tab, then click on the Repair Disk button. If DU reports any errors that have been fixed, then re-run Repair Disk until no errors are reported. If no errors are reported click on the Repair Permissions button. Wait until the operation completes, then quit DU and return to the installer.
    If DU reports errors it cannot fix, then you will need Disk Warrior and/or Tech Tool Pro to repair the drive. If you don't have either of them or if neither of them can fix the drive, then you will need to reformat the drive and reinstall OS X.
    2. Reinstall Snow Leopard
    If the drive is OK then quit DU and return to the installer.  Proceed with reinstalling OS X.  Note that the Snow Leopard installer will not erase your drive or disturb your files.  After installing a fresh copy of OS X the installer will move your Home folder, third-party applications, support items, and network preferences into the newly installed system.
    Download and install the Combo Updater for the version you prefer from

  • Why is my Mac Book Pro so slow?

    Hi my Mac Book Pro is running really slow. It takes ages to perform simple tasks such as opening apps and doing basic jobs. I have run a check on the computer using Etresoft and the results are pasted below. Can anyone see anything wrong or have any suggestions?  I have run Disk Utility and all fine. I have also cleared out loads of files on the hard drive and moved to a external one. Thanks.

  • Mac Book Pro Dead - Completely Unresponsive

    First to give a little background info - my Mac Book Pro is 13 months old - I missed the Apple Care Deadline by a week due to a mistake on my part. Upon purchase I received 3 faulty machines prior to this one. I had put the deadline in my calendar based on when I got a functional machine, rather than my purchase date - my fault. I tried to beg Apple Care for mercy a mere 2 days after my actual deadline and just got passed from associate to associate until one would finally just disconnect me. (This happened 3 times).
    On to the saga of last night. I'm working at home, running iTunes, Mail, and Photoshop. I'm working on a layout in Photoshop - nothing very taxing on the system at all. The only things connected to the machine were the power adapter and my Wacom tablet. As I was editing a photo, all of a sudden the computer just shut off. There were no beeps, no pops, no cracks, nothing. Just dead, gone, nothingness. I feared the worst immediately due to the no Apple Care. Unfortunately, I fear even more than my initial fears were accurate.
    I'm writing this post to see if anyone has experienced anything similar and has come up with a solution. I've searched the forums but don't seem to find anything but the random shut off issue (which this doesn't seem to be as those systems would at least reboot).
    So far I've tried:
    1) removing the battery, and powering up using only AC power
    2) resetting the PMU
    3) leaving it over night without power connected and the batter removed and then re-connecting to AC power
    Nothing has produced any results at all. Any help/advice is appreciated. I have a feeling that I'm pretty screwed as it seems like a power issue or a fried logic board - neither of which sound like cheap repairs.
    Thanks much.

    Well, no official word yet, however there I do have news to report. The Genius at the Apple Store (Michael @ Ridgedale Mall, MN) was VERY helpful and reassuring that he didn't think it was a huge issue. He doesn't think its a logic board or anything that in depth - his initial thoughts were that a wire simply came loose and thats why it will charge, but we get no activity when the power button is pushed.
    I also explained to him about my fiasco with even getting this machine in the first place (this is my 3rd machine - first two arrived damaged out of the box), and they had it on record that I had tried to buy apple care within the year time frame of when I actually received the satisfactory model (this one). Plus the fact that this is no where near my first Apple purchase and that ALL of my other products have AppleCare plans.
    He gave me some pointers and told me to call AppleCare today and explain the situation, explain that I'd been misinformed from various channels, etc. Well it worked, and I now have AppleCare on the machine as of today.
    I should know what repair is needed in the next day, and hopefully have the machine back early next week.
    Needless to say this experience once again renewed my faith in Apple and the support they offer loyal customers.

  • Will a new 320gb hard drive work on a mac book pro 3,1

    purchased new 320GB hard drive for a mac book pro 3,1.  Old HD has link speed of 1.5GB, new HD transfers at 3GB.  New HD will not boot up.  Can link speed be changed on mac book pro 3,1.

    Have you already initialized/partitioned the new drive? If yes, you've installed the operating system on it, and it doesn't boot? You've tried a safe-mode boot (hold the shift key when booting)?

  • Why did my 17"Mac Book Pro loose its ability to output video through it's adaptors?

    Why did my 17"Mac Book Pro loose its ability to output video through it's adaptors? I have S-Video, RC, and an HDMI adaptors that use to work and output video. At somepoint an OS upgrade stoped their functionality. Is this something I can correct? If so, any ideas as to a path to follow?

    2011 and later MacBook Pros shifted to Thunderbolt.
    Pre 2010 MacBook Pros may have a PRAM battery getting old.
    One of these factors may exist.   Not knowing the age of your MacBook Pro, I can't say for certain.
