    My MacBook Retina will not turn on its display. The fan is running as if it was frozen. Basically if I listen to the fan it turns on and off in a repeated pattern. If I hold down the power button then nothing happens. Is there anything I should try that might reset the MacBook. I have held down the power button for a minute and nothing happens. Need any ideas. Thank you

    SMC Reset?

    You should try reseting the Macbook Pro's SMC.

    Follow these steps:
    Shutdown your MacBook Air / MacBook Pro

    Connect the power adapter to your Mac

    On the MacBook/Pro’s keyboard, hold down the Shift+Control+Option keys and the Power button at the same time

    Release all keys and the power button at the same time

    Boot your Mac as usual

    I'm sorry to hear that mate. I think you should carry it to an Apple Store and let them have a look at it.
