A Frozen 2008 Macbook Air

I had my laptop plugged in while I was studying and the hard drive went to sleep. Only now, it won't wake up. It's frozen.. it will not do anything. I tried tapping the space bar, pressing the power button even disconnecting my power cord but to no avail. The sleep light is on but no one is home! I need to finish my calculus homework! Please Help!!

Try You can force a frozen MacBook Air — or any current Mac laptop — to shut down and restart without removing its battery. You just hold down the power button for a few seconds until the machine shuts off, then wait a few seconds, then turn it on again.

Macbook pro frozen screen cause/cure?


This will sometimes happen when the RAM memory starts to go.
if you have 2 pieces of ram, try removing one, if it continues to freeze switch them. If you only have one piece of ram, you may need to pick up new ram.
there are other possible reasons, possibly hard drive, but ram is one of the most common reasons for freeze on startup.
here is hoping.
Good luck

Frozen up just the circle of death spinning


listen to the hard drive, does it make a repetitive read access sound. if so i would assume your hdd is broken somebody has to open the Laptop and replace the hard drive and re-install your OS. If you want to pay to have somebody do it for you there is a third party Macbook Repair Service. However, if you want to do it yourself, the part is available on ebay. Here's an Macbook Repair guide. Maybe a tech savy friend can do it for you.

Hello, since yesterday my macbook pro is frozen, just don't know how to fix it! My macbook pro was frozen with the apple and grey screen, showing timeclock, so this morning i restarted it with the power...


Take the 2 RAM chips out and make sure they are compatible with your computer and make sure the RAM chips are not broke or defective. Re-insert new RAM chips and make sure they are firmly inserted in their bays. Also, install disc 1 of your 2 disc gray set and hold down C key to boot from disc. Then click on tab for install English. Then go to the top of the screen to utilities and click on disk utility. Now on the left side of screen select your hard drive and then at bottom middle of screen select repair disc. Then when that's done select repair hard drive. Now quit the disc and choose restart from hard drive. See if that don't help ya any. Also, could be bad boot sector in which you will have to save all your data and re-install the operating system. If that don't work, then look into getting a new hard drive and then re-install the operating system. Take your computer into the Apple store and have the Apple dorks look into it if your still under warranty, because you just dropped down some serious cash on this machine.

Waking from sleep mod


Hello
The hinge is a very fragile part of the Macbook. In the hinge goes all the video and sound cables, as well as the backlight power. You can have a hardware problem here with your connectors.
However the sleep mode can also take its time to wake up:
- The hard dive needs to wake its 5400 rpms - The system has to wake - The video has to wake
I would think that a fast internal hard drive, as a SSD drive for example, will wake up much faster.
Hope this helps
