I have macbook pro early 2011
MC700 model. Few days back I was using it on battery and connected my samsung phone data cable to USB port and when I was about to connect other end of cable to my phone, macbook crashed. I took it to service centre and after few days technician told me macbook
motherboard has short circuted and it need to be replaced. My macbook is just 3 month old and warranty has saved me from the cost of repair. I want to know what exactly is reason of short circuit. Is it fault in that model or this kind of short circuit of motherboard on connecting data cable is a common phenomenon. Now in future I will think twice before connecting my USB cable or pendrive to USB port of macbook. What can be exact reason of shortcircuit of motherboard. Thanks in advance.
