    Hi, I will honestly pay anyone who can help me with my Macbook Pro issue.

    When I turn on my mac, it turns of by itself during start up. After googling the issue, I started the mac while holding down the "fn" button. As long as I held down the "fn" while logging on to my computer it worked, but when I released it, it turned of after a few seconds. Does anyone have a solution to my problem? If only holding down a single key to make to mac work, the problem cannot be too big? Please help me out! I'm currently studying abroad with no apple store close to me and I need help.

    I will honestly pay a fair amount of US dollar to the person who can give me the solution. Via paypal, neteller etc.

    Hoping for a quick and positive reply and thanks in advance!

    Is it a 2011 15" or 17" MBP? If it is, it's likely to be the GPU failing.
    Apple will fix it for free if you can take it in.
    I'd try booting it in Target Disc Mode to back-up your files.

    Can you boot into "Safe Mode"?
    Reboot, and hold down the shift key...

    Yes, thats the problem. My computer works while I hold down that key, and the fn key, but once I release, the computer turns itself off after a few seconds..

    you tried this one? (there was alot of text.)
    If the battery is nonremovable
    1. Shut down the Mac.
    2. Plug in the MagSafe or USB-C power adapter to a power source and to your Mac.
    3. Using the built-in keyboard, press Shift-Control-Option on the left side of the keyboard, then press the power button at the same time.
    4. Release all keys, then press the power button again to turn on your Mac


    how about this one? probably not anything to do with your issue

    but if the smc resetting doesnt work, can you call apple?

    Will it boot if you hold down the SHIFT key (not the Fn key)?
