I guessed, but can the processor make a system do like that?

Yea, if there is no coolant or the heat sink is not dispensing enough air away from the vent.

Did you perform any software update on it?

First of all reinstall the operating system, some mac are like that, if you reinstall it, the screen will go back to normal.

Again, it can also mean that the screen is getting bad but reinstall the operating system and check.

Already reinstalled the OS. My screen may be getting bad already.

Do you have any idea the cost for a replacement screen for MacBooks?

Remove the battery and connect only the charger to see if it will power on without the battery.

If doesn't, I'll advise you to see a laptop technician for diagnoses.

It has nothing to do with the fan, even if it rotate well.

If you have a fan issue it won't rotate at all.

Then it's a software issue. Go the device manager, uninstall the wifi driver and restart the pc.

Note: After uninstalling, you'll see the wifi in the taskbar cancelled out. When you see this, restart.

Unless he is using the latest Windows 7 update before it was discontinued, if not after uninstalling the WiFi adapter, he will have to install the driver again.

Even if he restart 100 times it won't install, the best thing for him to do is go to network settings, locate all connected device on the pc and remove all of them including phone device then reconnect again.

Another easy to do is right click on the WiFi and click on troubleshoot.
It will scan it and give him a clue of what's wrong.

All windows 7 came with wifi drivers preinstalled, therefore if he uninstall the the driver without having the latest win7 updates, it will automatically reinstall after the restart.

All Windows 7? That's not true.

Some laptop model requires you to install the drivers.

That's a sign of a failed OS load.

Possible solutions:

1. Get the recovery/Operating system CD that came with the laptop and use it for repair. (This is given that you bought it new). Yet some new laptops don't come with that.

2. Get a bootable USB/CD to repair

3. Re install window if all fails.

@ Sir Udemzy and SirMichael1

You're both right about the driver thing just that you're viewing it differently.

His claim: All window 7 come with a generic network (WiFi) driver. This is TRUE!

However, there is a caveat to his claim and that's where your explanation sort of come in.

These generic driver is not compatible with some radio controller that come with some laptops. In this case, the laptop will have a non functional WiFi unless a proprietary driver is installed even though the WiFi driver (generic) is indeed present in the installed window 7

I understand what he is trying to say, but from his explanation, he said if he uninstall it and restart it will automatically install back.
Some are not compatible, you will need to install one by yourself.
That's why i said it depends on the model of laptop.

Yes! you can do 2 or 3 yourself but it might be frustrating and end up spending too much time on guides if you have no first hand experience.

Option 2 must not be more than 1.5k
Price is btw 2-3k for re installation.

I can help if you are in OGUN STATE.

Try playing those videos on VLC. If they are not still playing and you're certain they played before the upgrade then get back here.
