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

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
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 :: How Do I Mount The Hard Drive Of One MBA Onto Another MBA
I want to check the hard drive of the old MBA and remove some files as I filled up the hard drive by mistake while I was backing it up.

Whenever I start the old Macbook Air, it shows a blue screen. I can see Yahoo Widgets but the dock is off the screen.

How do I mount the HD of the old MBA? I have two USB ethernet dongles. I have an ethernet cord.

Can I simply connect them up via the USB ports? Will that mount the old MBA onto the new MBA?

I am in serious trouble because I don't have a backup. I wrecked the hard drive while I was doing a backup.

I am trying to salvage whatever I have on the hard drive of the old MBA.

I think I can salvage a lot. I just can't see the Desktop of the old MBA when I start that computer up.

As my new MBA has 256GB I am going to try and mount the old MBA onto the new MBA and remove some files from there.

MacBook Air :: MBA Vs. PB G4
I never got the chance to move to a MacBook so the Air will be my first Intel-based laptop. Quite excited!

I do have 3 comparison questions that I was hoping someone out there could answer, if you owned a PB G4...

1. Loudness -- Is the MBA's 1 mono speaker at least equal to the PB's 2 stereo speakers? I frequently watch TV shows online (who needs cable?) and would like to be able to hear dialogue w/out using headphones...

I've done the research and it seems people are "surprised" by how loud the 1 mono speaker is -- but is this surprised b/c you thought it would be horrible, or surprised b/c it's just as good as stereo?

2. Encoding -- I frequently rip DVDs to .mp4s for iPhone viewing. Sometimes I go off the disc using Handbrake; sometimes I use VisualHub to go to .vob and then to .mp4. Relatively speaking, the entire process takes 6-8 hrs for a movie.

Has anyone done this w/the MBA and external drive? How long does it take on average?

3. Heat -- The PB G4's fan turns on and gets hot during intense usage, but I would say this is rare for me (labeling me a light/internet user I'd suspect).

However, there are 2 fans on the PB G4 located at the front of the computer, while the MBA has a single fan in the back (correct me if I'm wrong).

Does the fan appear to turn on more often in the MBA b/c there's only one in a poorer location?

MacBook Air :: Anyone Use A 3G Phone With MBA?
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?
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 Pro :: Screen Wont Turn On - How To Fix It
yesterday, i was using my macbook pro and i noticed it was getting kinda sluggish, from having all sorts of apps and things running all at once, so i figured i would quit all the apps and restart my mbp to free up all the ram, well when i restarted my mbp the screen was black, and nothing was happening, but i noticed the white light on the latch was a soldid white, so i restarted the mac again and this time i pressed the option key and it brought me to a screen where i can choose what i want to do, so i clicked on my macintosh HD icon, and it booted my mac and i was able to use it.

so i was using it and i had to shut it down and pack it up to go home (from work)
and when i got home, and went to boot up my mac, it did the same thing, but this time i cannot get to the screen that i mentioned.

i dunno what to do now. i'm worried that it is damaged and will need repairs, but i cannot afford to pay for the repairs, and i need all my data that is on the hard drive, it has all my itunes, and iphoto libraries

When i plug my charger in it`ll take a few seconds before light on the magsafe connector light up (green). im pretty sure it isnt the DC Board (since its been recently replaced with a newer one). can it be my logic board?

MacBook Air :: Get Gigabit Ethernet On My MBA?
Last Saturday, the local Apple reseller sold me a MBA (Apple USB-Ethernet device included) and a nice gigabit ethernet switch. However, the Apple USB-Ethernet device is 100Mbit, not gigabit, something I failed to notice and they failed to tell me (which is sad, but somewhat understandable given the circumstances of the sale).

Still, I would like to have gigabit ethernet via USB. Is there a 'known to work' solution to get gigabit ethernet via USB on the Mac (specifically MBA 2009)?

MacBook Air :: MBA 11.6 Cold Boot
I'm not a very computer savvy person, but I just have a quick question about my initial startup of the macbook air. I received the laptop from fedex today, and immediately tore it open and started it up. I live near philadelphia pa, so it was a little chilly out today. I didn't even think about letting the laptop warm up to the inside temp. I've read that booting up a cold computer in a warm environment is bad for condensation reasons, but does this apply for a sealed brand new computer? I love this thing and it would be a real bummer if I messed it up within 3 minutes of getting it.

basically I'm looking for the 13 MBA equivalent of this for the MBP:

Something well padded and somewhat rigid so I could throw it in my backpack or briefcase, with a pocket that could hold small stuff (hdmi cable, iphone cord, earbuds)

anything like that for an air? or would you not be concerned about the extra space in that guy designed for a MBP
