I am using macbook since 2 years.
All was ok & suddenly one day i meet Horizontal lines in bottom of macbook screen.
I think apple doing this lazy issues intentionally to force consumer to purchase new.
Here is the situation when it came in my case:
I heavily used below GITHUB commands while working on my project.
the project location was desktop in my case:
git fetch --all
git reset --hard origin/master
git reset --hard origin/<branch_name>
then i found my macbook got freeze for seconds & start displaying those Horizontal lines.
- I forced shutdown mac.
- I pressed shift+control+option + shutdown button for 10 seconds
- My mac started then i click select restart mac option from top mac icon
- then i press D button for some some time time until i got window for diagnosis - follow process from here(How to use Apple Diagnostics on your Mac)
- After mac diagnosis complete i found no issue with my mac & i start mac again.
- i found all ok no issue since then
PRECAUTION TO AVOID IT:
I not put all in order but mostly all are important.
- I also turn off keyboard light, turn off auto screen.
- I deleted all utorrent, crome extensions, all heavy software that not use.
- Don’t use Apple provided widget on Desktop. (it is overlay on screen)
- Don’t charge mac 100% all time.
- Don’t keep open multiple application if not need.
- Don’t download softwares that supports ads.
- Don’t put your macbook on you body. Wisely use on table.
- Alway close macbook & uncheck the reopen window option ( when you shutdown mac pop will show this option.)
- Don’t use heavy graphics softwares that is out of your mac configuration.
- Keep update mac as soon as new version available. - IMP
- Always clean mac so it will be save from dust that goes inside & create issues.
- Don’t use mac all day take some rest.
- Don’t open un secure websites & movie sites that don’t support or requires video splash.
if you follow above you will also save yourself from following problems that other macbook pro users also getting nowadays.
