How Common Mac Startup Issues Can Be Resolved
Power supply, hard drive, battery, logic board, and even OS corruption can be the reason of having startup troubles on your computer.
Here we have covered all the points, so that, you can easily resolve the issues on your own.
- When the system doesn’t turn on
There could be three major reasons why your Mac is not turning on.
The first one could be the failed power supply. If you hear a popping sound during the startup, this means the capacitor has failed. However, you can easily change the power supply or the AC adapter with a new one.
If your system goes through a crash, it can defect the batteries. A dead battery can also be the reason of this problem. For the older Apple laptops, one can just remove the batteries and troubleshoot again.
Macs come with PRAM battery. This battery is where all the setup choices, network settings, and startup drive get saved. If your PRAM battery is dying and resetting the time and date every time you unplug Mac, you need to give it a break. Just plug in the computer and let it stay like that for around one hour.
- When you hear noises during the startup
Different noises during the startup can indicate the problem your Mac is having. For instance, if there is no other sound except for the fan running, then, this can be the indication of the dead power supply.
Similarly, the loud ticking sound indicates a failing hard drive. You can get a backup of your important data and freeze the drive to resolve the issue.
- Strange startup tones
If you hear some weird noises and see blinking lights, the problem is with the hardware. You need to see remote support in this situation.
