Help! Macbook Air 2015

NaBxH5O3vOjuDPAp.standard.jpg.b0c5e43a43cd97465be9d702063e603e.jpgHello! I need help regarding my Macbook Air 2015. I was just browsing on the internet when suddenly my screen became white like in the picture. Ive held the power button to it shutdown and let it cool off. After i booted it up, the white screen appears. Is there something I can do? 

 

 

 

I've found a same problem with the watermark of Redmi K20 Pro same issues. Thats what my screen looks like IMG20220627183129.thumb.jpg.e24adc6b827ff91a174f7eb700fce1c7.jpg

it's likely that either your gpu or your screen are dead. considering these models had an igpu iirc, it's probably the screen. try connecting it to an external display to see if you get any output.

Don't ask to ask, just ask... please 🤨

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

Oh, sadly i dont have any other external monitors. If it were to say the gpu or the screen were damagr how much the estimate cost it would need to replace the part?

if the gpu is dead you might as well toss the laptop because you'd have to replace the entire motherboard with everything on it. replacing the screen would be more affordable but possibly not worth it for such an old machine anyway... the screen itself goes for about 160 bucks on ebay (new), a bit less if you get a refurb, then you'd have to hire someone to replace it - meanwhile a complete refurbished 2015 mba goes for $250.

Don't ask to ask, just ask... please 🤨

Yeah thats totally fine to do. Basically making your own mac mini :p.

 

Just a tip these airs need to be open to cool themselves a lot better so when using it like that make sure it can stay open.
