How do you reset an apparently dead MacBook? May work on others.
Well, I have to admit this one is a new one on me…But hey, I'm open to ideas.
My daughter's 2016 MacBook recently just refused to turn on. Completely dead. Nothing. Not a sausage. I thought it was an ex-macbook. I tried the normal stuff like a PRAM/SMC reset etc. but no, it wasn't having it.
Fortunately for her, I had another unit I could give her. Today however, I stumbled across a weird key combination I'd not heard of.
Power + trackpad + space bar.
No. Me neither. So, I thought nothing to lose…held them down for 10-15 seconds and wowa the units springs into life.
What the actual. I've never heard of this combination before but it absolutely worked.
Anyways, you live and learn hey.
