SOURCE: Hello, I'v got a MacBook
1. Turn your MacBook Air off by holding down the power button for about 10 seconds.
2. Hold down one of the Shift keys and press the power button for a few seconds. Keep holding the shift key for about 1/2 minute. This will start the machine in "Safe Mode." It will check to make sure there are no errors on your hard drive and do other tasks to hopefully fix your problem.
3. Once you see your Desktop (if you do), click the Apple menu and click "Shutdown".
4. Start the computer normally by holding down the power button for a couple seconds.
If this doesn't work, you may need to reinstall the operating system. On a MacBook Air, that's a bit more complicated. You'll need either the external DVD drive (an optional purchase for the Air) or another computer. Your computer manual explains how to install software on that other computer (may or may not be necessary) so that you can use that computer's DVD drive to put the disc in and reinstall Mac OS X operating system.
Good luck! Please let us know if you have further questions or problems.

Your best bet is to reset the System Management Controller;
...and then reset the Parameter RAM:
If it persists after that, try Safe Mode:
...if that persists, try booting to your install DVD and running Disk Utility:
..also note in this article that if for some reason you are unable to boot into your Install DVD the instructions for using fsck will do the same thing.
If that fails to resolve the issue, you'll want to reinstall the system, but that is a bit more of a sticky wicket since you're on a Macbook Air that does not have an optical drive. You can use remote disc sharing with another Mac to do this:
...and then boot to that shared disc:
..and then reinstall:
If none of these steps resolve the issue, it will likely need repair at an Apple Authorized Service Provider or Apple Store.

Thank you for contacting Fixya Support.
Try these steps:
- - Reboot your Mac
- - Upon restarting your Mac, press the Shift key.
- - Hold the Shift key until you see a White Screen with Gray Apple icon and eventually a spinning gear.
- - When you see the Spinning gear, release the Shift key.
- - Allow the Mac to continue booting up. Also this may take a little while
(NOTE: this may take anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes to load to the Safe mode screen depending on the performance of your Mac, but if it exceeds this time, shutdown your Mac and try just once more. It may have just frozen up the first time around for you.)
- - You are going to enter the Safe Mode (which looks like your main desktop environment - the only difference is certain startup items are disabled.)
- - Once within the Desktop in Safe Mode
- - From the Finder Menu, click Go> Go to Folder
- - Type in this line: /System/Library/StartupItems
- - This path, is going to take you to the System Library folder which has all of your Mac OS X Startupitems.
- - Remove all of those folders to the Trash.
*Reboot your Mac normally and see if you can access your normal User desktop environment.
This should help.

It may be a possibility that the hard drive has gone bad or a connection to the hard drive. The spinning wheel and apple signify the kernel boot, or in other words, the process in which the machine finds the hd and os/software.. you need to bring your machine into an authorized repair center to have a system diagnosis to verify that no other parts of the machine are bad. That model is notorious for having bad hd's.
