SOURCE: Can't boot up my mac book air

hm, try leaving it on over night, sometimes if you turn your laptop of from the power or hold down the power button when allot of programs are running or if you get the program not responding thing happen this can mess up your laptop and will take ages to boot up,
or it might never boot again
so you will need to take the install cd/dvd that came with the laptop, insert it into your laptop, reset it again, then as u hear that sound apples make as you turn it on, hold down C untill it boots into the cd/dvd then go from there.

Try starting with the button below the touchpad pressed, that should eject the cd, then try starting from a system disk, put the disc in and hold the "c" key and start. If it boots from cd then in your application folder choose utilities and in there find disk utility, select your hard drive and then select the repair disc feature, when that has run select repair permisions, if all is well choose start up disc from the utiliyies and select your hard drive (it should tell you what os version it has, if not you will have to run archive and instal and then run software update.

SOURCE: Lost install disk for Mac book pro My 13" Mac book

You will need some install disks to even begin working on your issue.
Your options:

  • Find someone with the same model MacBook Pro and borrow the disks.
  • Buy a copy of Leopard (10.5) or Snow Leopard (10.6) and use them. If you are going to buy a set you might as well update to Snow Leopard (10.6)
  • Check eBay for install disks but make sure they are for the same model MacBook Pro.
  • Contact an Apple service center and purchase a replacement set of install disks.
Once you have a install CD, I would recommend backing up your system by making a disk image of the hard drive to an external drive. Then doing a clean install and then using the Migration Assistant to restore your user files to the clean install on your hard drive.

My macbook white fell on the floor and now I only get the apple logo with spinning wheel and time bar. I have waited more then 15 minutes but no changes. I do not have the disk. I have tired safe boot,...


The time bar may be telling you that there's damage to the hard drive, or perhaps just your hard drive's main partition.
If your Mac is running OS X Lion or Mountain Lion, you should have a recovery partition with Disk Utility on it. Restart your Mac while holding down Command-R to boot into this instead of your regular partition. Follow Apple's instructions on how to use Disk Utility to see whether the hard drive is damaged or just corrupted (and potentially corrupted).

Mac book air 13" i stuck on the startup. It does not go beyond the apple and the circle going around and around. Please help


Reboot your Mac with Command-R held down to see whether it can boot into Recovery Mode and if so, follow Apple's instructions for using Disk Utility to diagnose your hard drive. If it can't boot into Recovery Mode, take it in to an authorized Apple repair shop.
