my macbook air 2017 fell from about 3 feet. i can see the backlight on keyboard working when it turns on and the chime is also audible but my display remains black. can i try anything to make it work before going in for repair?

  • Welcome to Ask Different :) Apparently your display is broken. If you have an external display handy, you can check the sanity of the rest of the system. – Nimesh Neema Jul 18 at 11:22
  • Try a safe boot. Shutdown your machine. Hold down the shift key. Poweron. The boot up will take longer than normal because the filesystem on the startup drive is being checked and repaired as needed. All about safe mode including what features and apps safe boot leaves out. Safe boot uses a software driver instead of using your machines video hardware. support.apple.com/kb/ht1455 – historystamp Jul 18 at 20:48
