Macbook Pro not able to power up.

Hi guys,

I would need some advice on my macbook pro. I purchased my macbook pro (macbook pro 2018 model 2 years ago and suddenly the laptop went in to black screen and not able to power up and charge.

I went over to Apple service centre and currently are doing a diagnosis on the macbook pro. However, preliminary they said likely the Macbook mother board was dead.

I have tried shift + control + option and power button. The Keyboard backlight and screen was not lighted up.

Anyone has faced the similar issue before ? Is it possible to extract out the data from the macbook pro? Any recommendation on macbook data recovery service ?

Thanks for all the advice in advance.

It's not that hard to clone a drive especially on the PC regardless if the PC/Mac is dead or alive.

Once you've cloned your drive and have that other drive for backup, you can install the original HDD or SSD or NVMe SSD back into the MBP and then send it for repairs where they will probably format the drive with the fix.

Once that is done, if you are sure your MBP can boot up and all, you can 1st try to get the MBP to boot from your external drive which is a complete backup of the MBP drive prior to the wipe.

If it works, then you can safely take out the MBP's drive and clone the backup back to your MBP drive using a PC and a cloning software and install the drive back on the MBP. It shouldn't be hard.

For PC, Windows can still boot up using the same drive and Windows even if you change the motherboard and CPU. I am not sure if it is the same for a MAC seeing as it loves to have the software verify with the hardware component IDs. But it should really not be a problem if it works like Windows 10.

Reason is because I've saved my friends some headache by helping them backup their drives especially if the RMA process for their laptops include the manufacturers wanting to format the drive for the fix.

Remember. You are cloning the drive. Not copy and pasting files and all. Thus that external drive will be an exact replica data by data with your MBP's drive.

I use this same process to avoid having to reformat the PS4 when installing an SSD inside it. I just take out the PS4's old drive and clone it to the SSD and just install. Avoiding the whole hassle of reformatting and logging in to all accounts and especially downloading all the games back.

Hi, thanks for your reply. Will there be anyway to clone the drive if the drive was embedded on motherboard. The service centre inform us that the 2018 version in embedded SSD.
