    Hey guys! I need very urgent help with my White MacBook 13" 6,1 Model

    Since yesterday it started shutting down unexpectedly. I turn the MAC ON and it shuts down by himself during MAC OS X loading screen.

    I dont know if this helps, but i opened the macbook and i disconnected the touchpad connector of the mainboard... and since that it worked fine.
    What can it be? A faulty touchpad? With the touchpad connector off the FAN starts spinning faster and i notice the mac working a bit slowler.
    I tried to update the SMC but i found that there's nothing for macbook 6,1.

    What can i do?

    my first reaction was you had a fan or overheating issue, but I am perplexed as to why your reaction was to disconnect the touchpad connector. Did you recently damage it or something?

    Hey there! Thank you for your quick reply, i read something on Google about a guy who did the same (disconnected touchpad) on another macbook and it started working.
    I don't know if the problems are related, but the truth is with the touchpad connected to the motherboard the MAC shutsdown on the grey screen (booting up), but if i disconnect the touchpad it boots to OS X, and with an USB mice/keyboard i can work (a bit slower) and i hear the fan very fast.
    Another weird thing is that when i disconnect the touchpad the mac keyboard also stops working.

    At last, i was able to get an exact same touchpad (thought the problem was from the touchpad) ... but it the new one it does the same.

    Any guesses?
