You cannot load Mac OS, cannot work around the black screen and won’t be able to use your MacBook until it’s fixed.

Water damaged MacBook Pro repair
Water damage is another common issue. Most laptops will suffer water damage at some point due to the nature of being portable, being used a lot in coffee shops or by being around drinks. Depending on the nature of the damage, the Apple repair guys at Dave’s Computers in New Jersey may be able to help. We can assess and replace water damaged hardware, water damaged Retina screens and address many issues around liquid.
Troubleshooting your MacBook Pro
The MacBook Pro is a very reliable laptop that has proven its value and reliability over many years and millions of hours of use. Things can still go wrong though.
Three common issues MacBook Pro owners might face are:
- MacBook Pro won’t start
- Incompatible login items
- Spinning beach ball
While Dave’s Computers in New Jersey can help with all of these, you can also perform some basic checks yourself.
MacBook Pro won’t start
If you boot your MacBook Pro and see a gray or black screen instead of the desktop, all is not lost. There are a couple of things you can do at home to address it before bringing it to our New Jersey Apple repair store. As long as you hear a fan noise or chime and there is life in the laptop, try the following.
- Power on your MacBook Pro while holding down the Shift key.
- Allow the computer to boot.
- Restart your Mac.
This procedure starts your MacBook Pro in Safe Mode. When in Safe Mode, macOS runs diagnostics to try to figure out what’s wrong and then fix it. If it was something minor, your Mac should reboot as normal into the desktop.
If that doesn’t work, try running Disk Utility:
- Turn off your MacBook Pro.
- Hold down the power button, Command and R keys.
- Let go the power button while holding Command and R keys until you see the Apple logo.
- Select Disk Utility from the macOS Utilities screen.
- Select your hard drive from the list and select First Aid.
- Allow the tasks to complete.
- Reboot your laptop.
If your MacBook Pro still won’t start properly or won’t boot into the desktop, it’s time to bring it to our Apple repair experts.
Incompatible login items
Incompatible login items will often cause a blue screen when you first boot your MacBook Pro. This means a program or app you recently installed is trying to start automatically with macOS but isn’t compatible and has caused everything to crash. Sometimes your laptop will boot into the desktop after a while and sometimes it won’t.
If you can load the desktop, try this:
- Select the Apple menu and System Preferences.
- Select Users & Groups.
- Select your account and select Login Items.
You have two options from here. If you have recently installed a program or app before this began happening, remove it from the list of Login Items. Reboot your laptop and see if it boots properly. If it does, it was that app. If it doesn’t, try the below.
If you haven’t installed any new programs, select them all and select Remove. Reboot your MacBook Pro as normal. If it boots okay, repeat the above steps and gradually add those Login Items one by one until your Mac stops booting properly. Go back and remove the last app you enabled and everything should work fine.
Spinning beach ball
The Spinning beach ball isn’t unique to the MacBook Pro but is a common occurrence on Apple laptops. It means you’re having to wait while macOS completes a task that is slowing it down.
- Open Utilities and Activity Monitor.
- See what is using the most CPU or Memory.
- Highlight an app using a lot of resources and hit ‘X’ to shut it down.
You should be able to leave it there if that was the only app using up resources. The beach ball should now disappear and your laptop should now work normally. If this reoccurs frequently, check the app for updates or consider uninstalling it.
MacBook Pro repairs performed by Dave’s Computers
Case studies are always useful as they demonstrate how a company’s services help people in the real world. The same is true for MacBook Pro repairs we perform on a daily basis. Here are three recent examples when our Apple techs repaired a MacBook Pro for our New Jersey customers.
Water damaged MacBook Pro keyboard repair
Coffee damage is a frequent occurrence in a city with so many coffee shops and so many freelancers and entrepreneurs. So when Josh brought us his 2018 MacBook Pro that he had spilled coffee over it was nothing new to us. Josh had been able to shut the laptop down in time to prevent electrical damage but the keyboard was stained and sticky and he didn’t want to boot it up, just in case.
Our Apple techs stripped the MacBook Pro down, ensured all components were dry, checked that there were no electrical shorts, replaced the keyboard and cleaned up the laptop. We booted it on our test bench and everything worked perfectly!
Unresponsive MacBook Pro app
Julie’s MacBook Pro would boot into the desktop fine but as soon as she logged into a particular app, her laptop would freeze and become unresponsive. All she could do was reboot and not use the app. She brought her MacBook Pro into Dave’s Computers and we took care of it.
We updated the app and macOS to the latest version and it still kept crashing. We uninstalled the app and reinstalled it, cleared the app cache and it still kept crashing. Then we noticed Julie was using third-party security software and it was sandboxing the app. We whitelisted the app within the security software and problem solved!
Cracked MacBook Pro screen repair
Amy’s MacBook Pro had just gone out of warranty with Apple and she didn’t want to pay Apple prices for a new screen. Neither did she want to risk a new screen from an internet supplier, so she came to Dave’s Computers. The screen had a long crack along the right hand side from top to bottom. There was no option but to replace the screen.
We remove the old screen on our test bench and replaced it with a brand new, top quality replacement Retina screen. We provide full warranties on all new parts so Amy was more than happy!
