Info:MacBook Air (11-inch Late 2010)
I have a¬† 2006 Macbook that when powered up, the screen stays black, the machine beeps 3 times, and sleep light blinks 3 times before the process repeats over and over. When doing a search, I saw something about the RAM but
My iMac all of a sudden started to scroll down gray and then said I needed to restart. When I push the power button the screen lights up but the iMac just beeps. How do I start up?

We just get a new mac air. We were trying netflix video, and the browser did not response. Now It get a black screen and can't start.
I tried to press power button, etc, but nothing works.
We are rather new to Mac world. What are the things I could try?
BTW, the Mac air comes with a power supply only. There is no DVD drive or thing like that. How do I re-install OS if I need to?
I bought a new MacBook Air 13" on December 20, 2011.† I do like it a lot, but I have one big problem (its big to me!) and question -- about 3 times per week since purchasing the MacBook Air while working / typing on the MacBook Air, the screen just goes black fir NO apparent reason!! It is like the battery is suddenly totally OUT of any power!† But, the battery has plenty of charge, and no command or other key stroke nor any other activity that should cause this black screen has been done.View 14 Replies View Related
This is a minor complaint admittedly, but on a certain spot at the top of the bezel around my screen (just below and left of the camera) I have a black 'spot'. Every couple of days I wipe it away and it returns somehow! The only thing I can think is that maybe something is leaking from the trackpad (ie. from the inside of the machine but via the gap around the trackpad).
The machine is otherwise perfect, so I don't imagine there's anything seriously wrong inside...
When I try to turn it on, it keeps buzzing and the screen remains black.
why is it that when the headphone or the power supply is plugged in the screen goes black? I need a Mac air replacement asap.

After try to get it out of sleep mode the screen stayed black
Tryed to turn it on several times (magsafe or batery)
Reset the PRAM
Reset the SMC
Tryed Safe Mode¬†
Tryed everything I've found about it but the screen is still black. The mac is on, can hear the fan and the lion start cause when I press a key I can hear a "bump"¬†
Is that a know issue? Does apple offer an extra warranty period on this issue because it seems to be a comon issue on this machine.¬†

I just got a thin black line across my screen. It was normal this morning.

I know there are lots of sites that sell those plastic skins people use to decorate their laptops, but has anyone see a black one to go around the new macbook air screen? I think this thing would look really sharp with a black bezel, and I don't want to risk painting it or anything myself. I've done a quick google search and not found anything, but I'm also not really familiar with the popular sites and companies people go to for this kind of thing. I know Techrestore has announced a service to replace your air's screen with a matte one and replace the bezel with a black one while they're at it...but right now I'm just looking for an inexpensive, reversible (in case I don't like it) option.View 24 Replies View Related
About half a year ago I got a Macbook Air, and a Thuderbolt monitor. Then I installed Windows 7 64-bit on it. Everything worked fine until recently the Thunderbolt monitor started to go black during Windows startup without any particular reason. Using OS/X the monitor works fine. I already scanned for malware and viruses but cannot fine any. Windows restore refuses to work? I also tried several different boot options, installed latest drivers, reinstalled bootcamp drivers but no luck so far. ¬†

When I start my computer up in the morning everything else starts normally. First the light comes on on the front of the computer and on the bottom of the monitor, then the start up tone rings and the computer is fully running. But my monitor is black and I do not get the apple picture or nothing on the screen. I thought my monitor was going out, but we have another work station the same and I switched the monitors (same 27" cinema screen as mine). I can actually use the other computer and network into my computer and fully use everything on my computer. But my monitor is black (no display)! I have contacted MAC and have reset the PMU button many times and sometimes this works, but most of the time it does not. I just keep restarting the computer and finally it will start up normally with the display and everything.

Anyone else noticing their new macbook air freezing randomly and the screen just turns completely black? The back light is still on but nothing is on the screen.
None of the buttons work, can't force quit anything, i have to hold power button to turn it off then back on.
It has happened to me twice already, first time when i was installing the adobe suite, second time is when I was working on a school assignment with a simulation app (not cpu or memory intensive AT ALL).
I was BBMing while trying to plug in my headphones with my pheripherals, and I accidentally pushed it (not very hard) into the USB port. The tip of the headphone jack connected with the little connector ball at the bottom of the USB port. The screen went black and I instantly hit the power button on instinct, so I don't know if it shut off. Did I do something very bad, or is that normal? I'm not sure if that's even considered an electric shock or what.View 3 Replies View Related
After the 10.5.1 software I'm having a problem with distorted (stripes etc.) icons and menu dropdowns. Apparently not on my desktop or programs like Safari, Mail etc., only on icons and menu dropdowns, which I find odd. Sometimes it's gone, but after some time it reappears again. Anyway, sometimes my Mac (iMac G5, PowerMac12,1, 1.9 GHz) is going bonkers completely, which results in a first pink, then black screen. A hard shut down is then the only option. However, I guess it's videocard related (ATI Radeon X600 Pro). I did all the tests, fixes you can think of, but without any results. I contacted Apple support, but because this is an iMac, you can't just replace the card, they told me that the whole motherboard should be replaced, which will cost me approx. 700 EURO. Of course I am not willing to do that, which means that I'll have to buy a new Mac. Of course a new Mac is always a delight, but I find replacement after just 2 years unacceptable.

Been having a few huge issues with my new MBA 13".
#1 - Putting the laptop to sleep. I put the laptop to sleep and put it in the bag and at some point it wakes back up. If I don't remove it during the day by that afternoon/evening when I go to remove it the battery is at 0% and it's fully discharged. One day I took it out a couple hours in and the fan was blowing like mad like it had been running for a while, when I opened the lid I had a black screen and it was frozen. Disabled waked for network access but it was no help.
#2 - When the laptop goes in standby and I open it back up I get a beach ball forever - I've tried to let it go for upwards of 30 minutes and it never unfreezes, but I can move the mouse around. I ended up telling the laptop not to standby when it was plugged in to a power source otherwise I ended up always losing work.
I have been given a 1.6 Dual G5 running 10.3. I tried to upgrade to 10.4, the first disc installed but crashed several times on disc 2. I had run DU previously to check there were no problem. Each restart took me back to disc 2 which failed to install. I then tried to install 10.5 (Leopard) booting directly from the disc, it started then crashed leaving a black screen with the following promt:
local host:/root* (a hash not an asterisk!)
Anybody offer any suggestions as to what I should do?

I installed several system updates on my 2007 iMac last night, running OS 10.7, and today I can only get a black screen with a flashing white power light when I try to start up. My computer will neither start up nor completely shut down, and my wired keyboard won't communicate either.View 5 Replies View Related
Macbook air from late 2010. 2GB RAM, 1.86 Processing speed.¬†Won't start up, tried all key combinations possible. how to create a battery discharge so I can charge it again?¬†Yesterday it used to charge but was already dead...¬†

This morning, when I got into work I restarted my Late-2010 MacBook Air (128 GB HD, 1.86 GHZ Core-2 Duo, OS X 10.7.3) while holding down the "option" button as I normally do to access bootcamp and load Windows 7 because I need to use Excel Macros during the work day. ¬†What was unusual, however, was that it immediately started beeping loudly when I held down the option button and continued to do so without ceasing. It beeped 3 times, stopped, beeped 3 times, stopped etc. ¬†
The fans started running pretty quickly and I held down the power button and it finally shut down. I restarted and held down the "option" key again, booted into Windows 7 fine, and have since rebooted into OS X as well without issue.¬†It's the first time that I've heard this beeping except when I installed a firmware update a few weeks back.¬†I've done a bit of research and it sounds like it's indicative of a RAM issue but want to see if anyone knows for sure. I think it's strange that it did it once but hasn't again despite numerous restarts and also strange that it happened immediately upon hitting the "option" key when the screen went dark, as I always do.¬†

Do not want a nuisance to escalate into a serious problem thru benign neglect. Random black screen -- Turn monitor off then on, and all comes back fine. No loss of power in machine, no fan quirks, no overheating. Is it the Monitor? or the graphics card?

My G4 recently will not boot. I get the chime, it starts to boot, but almost never completes before I get the "you must restart you Mac" screen.I have the correct hardware test disc. I started using that two days ago. It still has not completed testing the logic board and the system is unresponsive. I guess that means the board is fried?

Then when I turn it off and let it rest and try to turn it back on it just gives me the three beeps and no screen
Can't get back to my desk top.¬† All I have is a black screen with white text starting Darwin bsd.¬† Have tried a safe reboot but after grey then normal blue screen when loading, this disappears and I get back to the black screen again.

Is anyone else having problems using their headphones with the Macbook Air? My Shure E500 headphones have a loud hiss and instead of playing music properly, the music is filled with odd bleeps and bloops. I have a similar problem with my Etymotic headhones. I *think* the standard iPod headphones worked fine, but I no longer have them on hand to test.View 4 Replies View Related
I have a G5. It started whining loudly and now it has a black sceen. Can't find old discs to reboot.View 8 Replies View Related
I've noticed recently that my screen brightness will suddenly increase or decrease by itself. When I press one of the control buttons it indicates that it is 3 or 4 steps higher or lower (obviously allowing for the fact that pressing a control button moves you one step anyway!) I have the 1.8 SDD. I love the machine....but anyone have any ideas about this. It only happens under battery power.View 8 Replies View Related
My brother has a second gen, 800Mhz eMac (the one that could be overclocked to 1.33Ghz - the earlier PC133 ram model). Since about 1.5 mths ago, when he powers it on, sometimes it will not power on, and other times it will give three beeps (diagnostic pages say bad RAM) and a flashing power/sleep light in unison with the beeps. Did this vintage suffer bad caps? I recall that it was only the 1.25Ghz model that had bad caps, but I could be wrong.View 3 Replies View Related
I VNC to my iMac all the time (usually from iPhone with Jaadu, sometimes from another Mac with Leopard's Screen Sharing function: Connect to Server vnc://....) But lately it only works for a couple of days. After that, the remote computer's screen goes black and accepts no input. (But I can see/move the mouse cursor.) Once I get home from whatever trip I'm on, I then see that it's the same in person: all-black, no response to clicks or keys. I can move the mouse but I can't do anything at all. There's no solution except to force power-down.
For security, I run the "Computer Name" screensaver with password lock. The first time the black screen appears I see just a flash of the password dialog and then it's gone. After that, I never see anything but black (and the mouse arrow). The remote computer is NOT crashed, because it accepts the VNC connection request and password, and because it keeps churning out work from Folding@Home (which I can see on my stats page). But after a day or two away (maybe one VNC session per day) the screen and input are gone. Anyone else see this? (The only two changes made to that system lately: a new version of EyeTV software--but it's not recording or anything. And the 10.5.7 update. I'm guessing it's something new to do with 10.5.7.)
I've had problems with my Mac for a while now. First of all, it indicated ram problems with 2 beeps. I later fixed this by moving and changing around modules. It was solved, but now a new problem. The Mac seems to turn on, making its iconic sound for startup, but the screen remains black. After about a half to one minute, the fans go crazy and I have to shut it off. I've tried a few things like holding shift or alt, but that doesn't work as it doesn't even display a white screen.¬†
I need to know what to do and I don't really have the time to buy new parts right now. I'm really a windows based pc fixer by the way so I'm new to fixing macs.¬†

My iMac turns on but just beeps three times stops beeps more times and won't start up
Can I use existing 85w magsafe adapter from existing macbook pro with new MBA 13 magsafe2 port ?
I came back from work to wake up my iMac. It made the noise but the screen stayed black. I tried restarting by holding the power button- I can hear it start and the chime but still have a black screen. I tried resetting the pram, and unplugging the cord but I still get a black screen. I can hear the chime though; I'm not sure if that means anything. I just had the hard drive replaced in February so I hope it's not that. just wanted to clarify that when I restart, I get the chime but the screen stays black- I don't get to the grey screen. So I'm assuming right now that my display may be shot?
