    I was using my MacBook Pro and the screen went black. I forced it to shut down and now it isn’t functioning properly. When I press the power button the boot sound comes on 1/2 way and then nothing happens. Screen stays black. I tried cleaning out the vents, the holding down option command P R, the holding down the S, the holding down the shift,……nothing is working. Please help. Thank you in advance!

    Need more information about your computer before we can help. What screen size? Year?

    I can't try an external monitor because my external monitor is HP and has never allowed me to connet it to my Mac. Any other tips? :)
