Thread: Dropped MacBook

  1. #1
    Dropped MacBook
    Dropped my 2008 aluminum about a foot onto the left side on carpet, no visible damage.
    No boot, no green button, no chime.
    Plenty charge and charge level dots along left edge. Push button and get faint disk sound like its spoiling up and 2 seconds later a faint click.
    Is this apt to be a hard drive injury or a motherboard or, other?

    Welcome to our forums.

    Suggest taking it apart to see if the drop may have dislodged something keeping it from booting up. Hard to say what it could be.

    Go to iFixit: The Free Repair Manual to look up the take apart instructions.
