After spill, MacBook Pro 2012 starts up and stops
The battery is shot, but after a good cleaning the laptop boots into safe mode.
However, it asks for my password and of course my daughter does not remember it.
Any way to work around this, or any other suggestions you have would be greatly appreciated. I'm a pC so am a bit of a fish out of water in mac land!
SO if you do respond, please remember my lack of knowledge / experience.
I also have another macbook npw (older version 4.1). Can I run anything with the damaged drive hooked up to it via USB to determine what the HD issues may be? The older mac is running Mac OS X 10.6.8.
Thanks again all!!!
I'll keep trying! At least it starts!
So my daughter spilled red wine on her 2012 Mac Book Pro. I took it home, cleaned it up (alcohol, etc) and dried it out.
Everything looked pretty good. I took the hard drive out and was able to recover all her data. After cleaning and drying, I put the hard drive back in. When I got it, it was totally dead. After cleaning, it turns on, shows the apple and then cuts out.
Any ideas on what to do next or how to trouble shoot this??
I feel we're close!
Thanks for any help provided in advance. you guys are great!!
