Reset the PRAM if you haven't. Hold down Opt, Command, R, P the second you turn the computer on, and hold them down until you hear the startup tone once, and then once more. Let go, and see if it boots. If not, turn on, and hold down S (command -S in older systems) type in the first option and let the computer do a self check. if it says it repaired something, repeat until it says the system is ok. Then reboot.
If you can't even turn the computer on, well, that's an AppleCare or SOL situation.

Why my Kindle is not working on my Apple macbook air?

Close the Kindle app and restart it. If that does not help, try restarting your MacBook.
If that does not work, try deleting the Kindle and reloading it on your system.
Everything you got from Amazon will still be in your Amazon account.

Need help mac book pro

Hi Daniel
Try this. Make sure your boot CD/DVD is in the drive and switch off the computer - hold down the power button until it goes off completely - it takes 7 to 10 seconds. Then restart the mac but immediately press and hold the alt key (or option key - the one next to the key with the pretzel on it) After a moment or two you should get a blue screen with the spinning pizza. After about another 10 seconds or so you should get an icon of your HD and an icon for the CD/DVD If you only get the CD/DVD then your HD has a problem. If your get neither then you had best take it to a service centre as there is something more seriously wrong.
Assuming you get the CD/DVD icon click on it then press the big arrow that should also be there (NOT the bendy arrow - that means Go back)
The computer should then start up from the CD/DVD. Once you get the Install screen come up, go to the menu bar and find 'Disk Utility'.
This will take over and you can run the first aid routine IF the utility can actually see your HD. With luck it will and will sort it out. then quit the utility and restart the computer and see what happens.
If on the other hand you didn't get anywhere, or disk utility gave you a failure message, then you need some more aggressive software like DiskWarrior or Drive Genius. They are both very good at restoring misbehaving or non-mounting HDs.
On the more black side, Apple unfortunately managed to fit a batch of bad HDs to some macbooks. These were made by Seagate. They ran beautifully for about a year and then failed catastrophically. Apple replaced these drive without question but unfortunately the data on them was completely lost. One of my clients send their drive to Ontrack who returned it saying that no recovery was possible.
So be prepard for the worst.

Can't install mac osx 10.5.7 combo update on 10.5.2

The 10.5.7 update sometimes does several automatic restarts - depending on the mac and the previously installed OS version.
In my opinion the 10.5.7 update has been the strangest I have done.
Try this.
Hold down the power button for about 10 seconds. The MacBook should now be off - but it may restart automatically while flashing the sleep light at you - and make a long beep noise. Don't worry if that happens just let it do whatever it does. Watch the screen and follow any prompts that come up.
If the MacBook did not turn itself back on, hold the power button down again for about 10 seconds. What happens now?
Don't press any other buttons unless the computer tells you to.
If however, you end up with another 3 hour wait then something is definitely wrong and you need to take it in to a specialist.
