MacBook Air :: Mba Wont Turn On - How To Fix It

Feb 14, 2009

Have been a happy Rev A 64GB SSD owner until yesterday when my Air told me to shut it off, by holding down the power button for several seconds. I let it cool down for 30 min, but it wouldnt turn on. When I tried this morning, it still would not turn on. I get the light infront, but the screen doesnt react in any way and no sound except some hard drive sound if i let it run for over an hour.

MacBook Air :: Screenflow Rendering - MBA-Black Versus White Mba 2.2

Dec 2, 2008

I ran a file to export which converts to a quicktime .mov file.I expected these times but what's nice is that the fans on the MB kick in at full blast in 1 minute whereas the MBA full fans at 4 minutes full. Far less fan noise on the MBA! Looking at the temps, the MBA ran a full 11 degrees cooler the entire time. Fan noise is very important as I can now record voice from a usb mic without the fan noise being recorded as was the case with the Macbook.

Only downside is that the MBA takes longer (didn't time it) to cool down. Does anyone else have a longer than usual cool down time for the fans to go from full 6500 rpm to the norm 2500rpm?

MacBook Air :: Advice On MacBook Air Hinge Defect Fix

Jan 10, 2010

I've had my MacBook Air for about a year, and one night I heard the dreaded crack. My MacBook Air suffers from the "Hinge Defect".

I decided to try to fix it myself by just gluing whatever broke together and hope it works. I took it apart and took the broken hinge out of the plastic casing.

So I have two questions. My first question is: Is it okay to leave it like this? The Right hinge is resting on the plastic hinge cover, therefore dropping the screen slightly when it is open. It works okay for now, but how long will this last?

My second question is: Say I do want to try to fix this further, how do I get the screen completely off, and how safe is it? I know I need to remove the screws that hold on the main hinges, but what about all the smaller screws? It doesn't seem to want to come off without those removed.

MacBook Air :: Anyone Use A 3G Phone With MBA?

Apr 24, 2008

I have an AT&T Express 3G card I use to use with my MBP (which I sold yesterday). I am picking up a MacBook Air today during my lunchbreak . Since the MBA does not have an express slot, I have the following options for high speed internet on the go:

1. Get a USB 3G Modem or get a USB adapter for my current express card. The only problem is it would stick out and take up the only USB port on the MBA.

2. Get a 3G phone capable of sharing the connection over bluetooth. It would look seemless, but I would have to make sure the phone is charged. I currently use an iPhone as my main phone.

I take a train ride everyday to and from work, so I've gotten used to (spoiled?) having high speed internet. If I go with option 2, I would probably get a phone that is not that feature packed, I just want a stable and reliable connection, as thats all I would be using it for.

MacBook Air :: MBA Not Booting At All?

Jun 17, 2008

I've got a MacBook Air (not mine) with me at the moment and I believe it's got quite a big problem.

Basically when you turn the Air on a black screen display for a couple of seconds with the chimes playing then a white screen appears at which point you can go no further.

I've tried everything; pressing the Option key to try and display the two partitions on the SSD, resetting the PRAM and SMC, pressing the D key and pressing the C key to try and get the install disc started in the connected SuperDrive. Nada.

I was wondering if anyone has any ideas on this problem before I take it to KRCS in Nottingham for diagnosis and repair? Maybe there is something I've missed or others have had a similar problem?

MacBook Air :: MBA 13 For Web Design?

Jan 8, 2011

Trying to decide which laptop to get for work. This will be my primary computer, and I'll be hooking it up to a 27" cinema display at home. I currently have an iMac 24" 2.8 core duo 4gb, but I need the portability of a laptop to work on at the office, and I don't want to keep the iMac and sync with the new laptop, I just want one machine to work on. Don't really want to spend over $1500 on the laptop, unless it is a significant upgrade. For work, I use some adobe cs5 apps, mostly photoshop, and every once in a while I use premiere to edit video off my canon t2i. The kicker is, I need to get something within 2 weeks. Like everyone, I'm anxious to see what the new MBP's are all about, but I have a feeling they'll definitely be more than $1500, considering the new air's are more than that when beefed up to 4gb, 256gb. I already ordered a cinema display as they are on sale, so figured might as well get that component. Here is what I'm thinking for choices.

MacBook Air :: 10.5.4 Killed My MBA / How To Restore

Jul 1, 2008

The 10.5.4 update appears to have killed my MBA. On boot I either get a grey box in the middle of the screen in four languages telling me I need to restart my computer, or I get a blank pale blue screen. I left it on the pale blue screen overnight but it never moved on from there...

Have everything backed up on Time Capsule, but I'm new to Macs, so can you advise on next steps, how I would go about getting my MBA to a state where I can restore from backup, etc?

Pointers to apple support sites welcome but I'm on my iPhone so searching isn't great.
