Screen turn on less than a second


I just got a problem that my Macbook screen won't work anymore. It will turn on just less than a second then goes black but I can still hear a normal initial sound when power it on.

This problem could be caused by a number of things. Did you try to rest the NVRAM?

Step 1: Press Command-Option-P-R quickcly when you turned on your macbook

Step 2: Release those key's if you hear the startup chime for the second time.

Step 3: Does your macbook boot normally ?

To rule out if it is an software related issue, can you run Apple Hardware Test?

Depending on your version of Macbook:

Step 1: Press "D" quickly when you turned on your macbook.

Step 2: Run the tests


Step 1: Press Option-D quickly when you turned on your macbook.
