My Mac model is MacBook Pro (13-inch, Late 2011) (MD314).

Things I've tried so far:

  • Reset NVRAM (PRAM) which actually does reset and laptop restarts when it resets.

  • Reset SMC.

  • Tried booting to Recovery, doesn't work, stuck on white screen.

  • Tried booting to Internet Recovery, still stuck on white screen.

  • Cleaned the contacts of the adapter charger and laptop's charging port with WD40 (dry contact cleaner for electronic equipments).

  • Tried attaching an external monitor and external HDD.

I'm not sure what's wrong, it has upgraded RAMs (2*4 GB slots) and a Samsung Evo 250 GB SSD.

My laptop doesn't have a battery, when the charger is connected to the laptop, the light is always green when I'm stuck on the White Screen.

What should I do?

    Stuck on a white screen is vague. This happens at boot when the backlight and brightness is turned on full during post. Do you get a logo when booting From any of the modes (safe, internet, etc.). If you do get a logo, try Verbose Mode (Cmd-V while booting). Can you connect an external monitor?

    It looks like the graphics card has failed. But there's hope... if you start up your Mac in verbose mode (press and hold Command-V and turn your Mac on, release the keys after 15 sec, see support.apple.com/en-us/HT201573 for details), do you see text on the screen or still a white screen?

    Hi Shayan, could you please check whether your screen displays text when starting up your Mac in verbose mode (press and hold Command-V and turn your Mac on, release the keys after 15 sec, see support.apple.com/en-us/HT201573 for details)?
