SOURCE: I bought Macbook air 11"

This exact same thing happened to me, the only way I got my laptop to work again was to reinstall the laptop's original operating system software. Follow the instructions on this website:

By doing this your macbook should work again, but all information on your harddrive will be erased including non-standard applications such as word ect...

Macbook Air 13.3" Not recognizing internal ssd


I use an external drive to boot from with Techtools 7 installed. I would test permissions, and then file integrity and see what it finds.

If the OS is corrupt it will prevent bootup. It could also be a failing SSD. First try Holding down "D" immediately after the dong sound and the Apple hardware test will start. Use the arrow key to choose your language.

Follow the instructions and when it is done it will show an error code if there is a problem. Post that code and I can give you more info on the problem. Chris

I can not update my mac to 10.9


Hard to say without knowing exactly what Mac you have and what specs, but most likely reason would be your system doesn't meet the requirements (From Apple support site) - To install Mavericks, you need one of these Macs:
  • iMac (Mid-2007 or later)
  • MacBook (13-inch Aluminum, Late 2008), (13-inch, Early 2009 or later)
  • MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid-2009 or later),
  • MacBook Pro (15-inch or 17-inch, Mid/Late 2007 or later)
  • MacBook Air (Late 2008 or later)
  • Mac mini (Early 2009 or later)
  • Mac Pro (Early 2008 or later)
  • Xserve (Early 2009)
Your Mac also needs:
  • OS X Mountain Lion, Lion, or Snow Leopard v10.6.8 already installed
  • 2 GB or more of memory
  • 8 GB or more of available space

Unless you upgraded OS X last summer, you have either Lion Or Mountain Lion, so, you can reset the password without any external disk.

On Lion or Mountain Lion, you use the following technique to reset the Administrators password:

Boot to your Recovery Partition, by holding down the Option key while starting, and then selecting the Recovery HD as the boot choice.

Once booted, at the top of the screen is a menu
>> select Utilities / Terminal from the menu bar.

In the Terminal window, type "resetpassword" (without the quotes) and press return.

A "Reset Password" window will open. Select your boot volume (your SSD drive) (it should already be selected.)

Select your administrators username from the menu labeled "Select the user account" if it is not already selected. Follow the prompts to reset the password.

Restart the computer from the apple menu. (top left corner)
If you are using the Keychain, you will lose your existing one, and have to start a new one, unless you remember the old password.

Your Macbook Air should start up without a password now.

If, in the remote chance this does not work, you get a free year of support on your Macbook Air (3 if you purchased AppleCare). If you have never called AppleCare before, and you are not sure when you bought your Mac, just give them a date that is less than 1 year ago, like October 20, 2013; and then they will step you through support over the phone.
Here's a good page to get numbers and more support, though what I told you should work.

All the best to you,

Can't open Excel files after installing OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion on my Mac. HELP PLEASE!


Try repairing disk permissions by running the Disk Utility application until you get no errors (then restarting).
Hope by doing that you get the solution.

What are the common problems with Apple OSX Mountain Lion?


Hello Patrick,

The most common problems I've experienced with Mountain Lion are the following:
  • Reduced battery life. I've noticed about an hour to an hour and a half cut off from my battery life of my Macbook Pro. I'm not sure if this applies to you since you have a Macbook Air, but my recommendation is to try a reinstall if you experience battery problems and turn off some of the extra features like Twitter integration and iCloud when you're not using them.
  • Safari is crashing. Safari is a browser that used to have little respect but now has actually gotten pretty decent. However, with Mountain Lion it actually crashes a lot more than usual. I don't have a fix for it offhand, but I would recommend just using Chrome (which I use anyways) or Firefox. And stay away from Explorer!
  • Free upgrades to Mountain Lion. When I got my free upgrade to Mountain Lion (if you purchased a Mac after June 11, 2012 you can get one too) it took Apple about 5 days to upgrade me to Mountain Lion. This is a super low priority problem, but it's still something I hope they're working on.
  • Notes synchronization. I have answered this on FixYa already, you can find it on the site.

Best of luck.

How much does Mountain Lion cost to download?


You can download Mountain Lion by going to the Apple Store. It costs $20 to get.

However, if you purchased your new computer after June 11, 2012 (which your question seems to indicate you did) then it will not cost you anything and will be completely free.

What are the requirements to download Apple Mountain Lion OSX?


You must have the following computer to download Mountain Lion:

iMac (Mid 2007 or newer)
MacBook (Late 2008 Aluminum, or Early 2009 or newer)
MacBook Pro (Mid/Late 2007 or newer)
MacBook Air (Late 2008 or newer)
Mac mini (Early 2009 or newer)
Mac Pro (Early 2008 or newer)
Xserve (Early 2009)

Once that is done, you must be updated to the most recent version of either Snow Leopard or Lion. If you don't have either of these operating systems (which is highly unlikely considering the other computers should have them, but I digress) then you will need to get them before Mountain Lion.

After that, go to the Apple Store and download Mountain Lion!

Macbook Error


It's not finding your operating system. Could be failed hard drive, corrupted registry or a start up disk error. Have you tried starting on the Macbook Pro install disk 1? If not, insert the disk while it's starting up, it and hold down "c" key. When I comes to the start up window, click the right arrow button, proceed to the install window but don't install! Instead select "disk utility" under the pull down menu (upper left hand corner of the screen). Select the hdd in the upper window and click the "repair" button. Repeat the repair again after is finishes. If there is no hdd icon in the upper window, the hdd is probably fried and needs to be replaced. Hope this helps.
