    So recently during a move, my MacBook was dropped maybe a foot to the ground. Since then Iv been having major problems. At first it would fully boot then the crash to a black screen, and after a while the black screen would turn white and Kindof flickered. Now it has gotten to te point where it no longer boots and just crashes after it chimes.
    I brought it to the apple store and te genius thought maybe the ram was shifted and this was causing this issue. So he re seated the ram and that seemed to work for a day.
    I would bring it back in to the apple store but the genius bar is now booked up for almost 2 weeks (probably because it is beginning of school time)

    So here are some things I have tried.
    Bought new ram- nope
    Bought new ssd - nope, crashes while trying to load a new OS on it.

    I can't even boot into diagnostics to see what is wrong anymore.
    I am now assuming it is the gpu/graphics card/logic board? Anyone else have any guesses or ideas?

    When you load in the SSD, do you load from a back-up or do you do a fresh start?

    Just doing a fresh start. Didn't have a big enough hard drive handy for a full back up, so just backed up key files.

    Time Machine? Asking since corrupted back up files can cause issues.
