    Macbook died?

    My 2017 Macbook died. I think. The screen glitched and then it went dark. No pulse. I've run into vid card and PSU issues on my Mac Pro and PC so I'm thinking it's probably one of those. I've never tried to replace parts on a laptop, and frankly, I would almost rather buy a new laptop. Thoughts?

    My MBP (2017) shows no reaction

    Dear community members, I have a MacBook Pro 13" from 2017 without touch bar. When it was new, it worked great. Accidentally, I dropped it once about two years ago, but for months I had no issues and it only had a small dent which is hardy noticeable, the screen is fine. It has no liquid...

    Post your non-working/dead Macs!

    I get the feeling we all have at least one or eleven of these tucked away somewhere. They may be future projects, donors, or even cobblestones for your own paved road to best-laid intentions. So I’ll start.

    Soooo, today I figured I wanted to replace the original, crisp thermal paste on my Early 2015 MacBook Pro 13" Retina. I opened the back case and just started working on it. Except one thing...

    iPad 2 Won't Turn On

    My mother got an iPad 2 in early 2013 and used it until she got an iPad Air 2 in 2016. Around that time, she accidentally dropped the iPad 2 with a cheap case in front of our door step and it cracked the screen, but it still worked fine. After several months to a year, it just stopped turning...

    PowerBook G4 won't power on

    I bought a 12" PB G4 (model A1010, 1.33 GHz) from eBay, and I'm having trouble getting it to boot.

I can't get to the apple logo, can't hard-restart it, can't get any response from charging nor plugging it in to my PC/iTunes. It worked fine when I watched a video before I went to bed...
