My Mac Gets Stuck at White Screen – How Can I Fix it?


Hey, can you give me some advices to bypass this white screen on my Mac? My Mac has been stuck at this white screen for about 5 hours since I started it this morning but still nothing happens now. But yesterday, everything on this Mac was still working well and it can shut off normally, as what I remembered, I believe there was nothing bad occurring. I am just confused why it gets such problems. I even can’t dare to shut down or restart it. Any help will be appreciated!

Even though Apple claims that Mac OS X is a very robust and healthy system, there is still problem with system, software and hardware. Once the system, software and hardware go wrong, Mac will also run improperly. Therefore, it is very common that your Mac gets stuck at White Screen while you start up it. Yes, White Screen usually occurs while you’re starting up Mac OS X system, and it will take a long time for Mac trying to bypass this white screen but still no success. Even though White Screen looks still and no changes, there are still processes going on in background. Keys on keyboard don’t work. There is no noise and Mac will not respond to any input, and sometimes it even doesn’t allow you to shut down. White screen seems very frustrating.
