Check how much hard drive space you have free.
Also, how much ram do you have?

How to Increase the Speed of a Macintosh Computer
Rebuild your desktop once a month by holding down the Command and Option keys as you restart your computer. Leave the keys pressed until the computer asks if you want to rebuild the desktop. Click OK.
Remove fonts you never use. (Open the Fonts folder in the System Folder and drag the fonts out.)
Open the Extensions Manager control panel and turn off system extensions you don't need. For example, if you're not on a computer network and don't have a printer, you can turn off printer drivers and file-sharing extensions.
Purchase and install speed-increasing software, such as SoftwareFPU from John Neil & Associates, Speed Doubler from Connectix, and Norton Utilities from Symantec.
Add RAM if your computer takes a long time to open programs and slows down when working with multiple programs or large files.
jQuery('.Article .Steps .Image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); }); Tips & Warnings

  • If you experience problems after turning off extensions, turn them all back on, then turn them off one at a time. Restart the computer and see if the problems recur. If they don't, turn off another extension, then restart and repeat until you find the one you shouldn't have turned off.
  • Remove only those fonts you have added that are not required by any program.
  • Don't turn off an extension unless you're sure you won't need it. If you have a PowerPC, be especially wary of extensions marked .lib or library. Multiple programs use these libraries, and you may experience severe problems if you turn them off.

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

Do the patterns of distortion change as you are twisting and bending the laptop body? If so, you're dealing with a logic board issue. Probably your GPU is not soldered properly anymore. Go to the Genius bar first, if they can't help you can try a self repair or send it to a third party place. There is a free Macbook Air Repair guide that will show you how to do it. iPad Repair
