Try to fix by yourself (tutorial)
The are few steps you should try before you spend your money.
This info can save you time and headache!
Many issues & problems of macs can be correct by reset the SMC or PRAM.
Don't worry, this is not clear you DATA!
On macbook – connect Magsafe charger > Hold Keys: Alt (option) + Command + Shift + Power button (without release 4-8 seconds)
When the machine up, release.
If it's not help, shut down the mac > open 8 back screws on back > disconnected battery (1:20) connector from Logic Board > Remove RAM sticks from sluts > Press few times on "Power Button" > Put back all and Turn ON.
On desktop station, like iMac, Mac mini, Mac Pro – Disconnect all cables (include Power) > Press on the P.button 30 seconds, release > Wait 5 Seconds > put cables back and turn on.

Reset PRAM (NVRAM)
Don't worry, this is not clear you DATA!
Reset PRAM is more easy to set than SMC. You should "Turn ON" your mac & immediately hold keys:
Alt (option) + Command + R + P
Don't release, wait until you hear the "Goong sound", Resume pressing, and on the "second Goong" (Famous sound of apple) Release.
That all :)
