We can try some basic troubleshooting steps and see how it goes.

First reset the PRAM and NVRAM of your Mac. Follow the steps below to reset the PRAM and NVRAM

    1. Turn off your Mac.
    2. Turn it back on and immediately hold down the Command(Apple)-Option-P-R keys. You must press this key combination before the gray screen appears and before the chime sound.
    3. Hold the keys down until the computer restarts and you hear the startup sound for three times.
    4. Release the keys and let the Mac boot up.

     

    Then reset the System Management Controller of your Mac. Follow the steps below;
    1. Turn your Mac off
    2. Plug in the MagSafe power adapter to a power source, connecting it to the Mac if its not already connected.
    3. On the built-in keyboard, press the (left side) Shift-Control-Option keys and the power button at the same time.
    4. Release all the keys and the power button at the same time.
    5. Press the power button to turn on the computer

     

    Please let me know if that didn't work, so we can coninue troubleshooting

    What Customers are Saying:

    Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
