We just moved from the United States to Costa Rica.  The first two days my mac worked great.  Then all of a sudden I was trying to use a game application and the screen went black and there is a white cursor which I can move around, but I can't escape it. When I restart it seems okay and I see my main screen, but only for a second and then it goes black again. 
This computer was brand new in June.  Is it the humidity???   What can I do.  Please help!!!!

No guarantess but try smc and pram resets,

  • I have the 2nd generation ipod touch and my screen went black and wont do anything what could be wrong?

    i realy want it to be fixed its my life

    Have you try to:
    > Charge your iPod?
    > Plug it to your computer?
    > Hold the Power button to turn on?
    If so and none work, you may need to replace your battery.
    iPod Owners
    Your one-year warranty includes replacement coverage for a defective battery. You can extend your coverage to two years from the date of your iPod purchase with the AppleCare Protection Pan for iPod. During the plan’s coverage period, Apple will replace the battery if it drops below 50% of its original capacity. If it is out of warranty, Apple offers a battery replacement for $49 (iPod shuffle), $59 (iPod nano and classic), $79 (iPod touch) plus $6.95 shipping, subject to local tax. Apple disposes of your battery in an environmentally friendly manner.

    NOTE: If you do get the battery replaced yourself, becareful when removing the screen because there is a special cable connecting to the iPod itself and the screen and its very fragile. If that break, then you also need to replace the screen as well.

    Try:                                               
    - iOS: Not responding or does not turn on           
    - Also try DFU mode after try recovery mode
    How to put iPod touch / iPhone into DFU mode « Karthik's scribblings
    - If not successful and you can't fully turn the iOS device fully off, let the battery fully drain. After charging for an least an hour try the above again.
    - Try another cable              
    - Try on another computer                                                       
    - If still not successful that usually indicates a hardware problem and an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store is in order.

  • Ipod touch screen went black and then started flashing. Then the turn off slide comes up.

    Ipod touch screen went black and then started flashing. Then the turn off slide comes up. Restored multiple times and didn't work. Ipod works with Itunes fine (can put music and podcasts on the ipod), but can't take songs off of the ipod. Using windows xp and everything is up to date. Any ideas of how to fix it?

    I didn't know that it was posted three times. My computer didn't say that it posted anything.
    My ipod still syncs to itunes and I can put podcasts and music on my ipod, but I can't delete songs after I put them on the ipod. When I try to delete songs I try to delete it from the main music list on the ipod. It's also doing all the other stuff that I posted before. The screen will go black and then the power off slider thing shows up for a few seconds, then it'll show the unlock slider bar. Then goes black again. It will also do that when I have the ipod unocked and changing songs or playing a game. I've restored it to the factory default/new ipod and it still does the same thing. I've uninstalled and reinstalled itunes and then restored it again to the factory default and it's still doing the same exact thing. I checked and my computer is up to date.

  • My iphone 5 screen went black and the only thing that works is siri!

    I was in the middle of opening up pintrest when my phone screen went black and won't turn back on. The only thing that works is siri... My lock button also doesn't work so I can't manually restart my phone. When I try to restore my phone i have to turn off find my phone but i cant because the screen is black.. Please please please help! I'm a poor college student who cannot afford a new phone

    Well, you can't perform a reset then. What happens when you plug the phone into a power source? If nothing, then you'll have to make an appointment at any Apple store. The genius bar will offer you an out of warranty replacement. Cost is US $269.

    Hey BlueEyedDude,
    Thanks for the question. I’m sorry to hear about your iPod nano! If you believe you have isolated the issue completely to hardware, you can learn more about servicing your device at the following link:
    Apple - Support - Service Answer Center
    http://www.apple.com/support/ipod/service/faq/
    If you’d like to attempt some more troubleshooting tips, see this link:
    iPod nano - 4th and 5th generation - Apple Support
    https://www.apple.com/support/ipodnano/4th_5th_generation/
    If you do decide to service your device, you’ll want to make sure all of the music and information is backed up. If you regularly sync your device with a computer, this music should be on the computer. If not, you can learn about what purchases you can transfer from the iPod to a computer:

    You will probably have to contact Apple for repair but before you do try this:
    Turn your iPad upside down on your lap and give it a hard smack on the back.

  • My iphone 4 screen went black and will not come back on, the screen lights up but is still black and will not show anything on the screen, it still vibrates though. help

    my iphone 4 screen went black and will not show anything on it, the phone still vibrates and lights up but the screen is black, HELP.

    I have a similar problem.  I restored my iPhone 5 to the latest available OS.  After completing the process the phone never restarted.  The phone was fully charged when I restored it but now refuses to charge past the red battery icon.  I have been able to get the phone in UFD mode several times and have been able to load the new OS on the phone.  The Apple logo does come on and the software fully loads.  iTunes tells me the phone will restart but never does.  I left it to charge all night but it never appeared to load the battery.  This morning I went to the Grand Central Terminal apple store for help.  A woman at the store plugged the phone in but it never charged.  She absolutely refused to believe that I got my phone in UFD mode and loaded any software on.  I don't think it is a battery issue.  The only solution I was given was to buy a new phone.  Repairing it was out of the question.  At this point the phone is completely useless.  Thanks in advance for the help.
