Macbook stuck on load up screen

When you say "load up screen", I assume you mean the Apple boot screen (it has the apple on a gray background).

You might try resetting the PRAM on the macbook.
You can do this by pressing and holding the Command-Option-P-R keys. You must press this key combination before the gray screen appears.

So, turn the macbook completely off. Turn it on and immediately press and hold the Command-Option-P-R keys until the computer reboots and chimes. Once it chimes, release the keys. Your system should boot normally.

How do you turn off DOS mode on a 13" MacBook Pro?

Is this a trick question? There is no "DOS mode" on a MacBook Pro.
Do you have WIndows installed as part of Boot Camp, and your machine is booting into Windows? To boot back into the Mac, either use the Boot Camp control panel in Windows, or hold down the Option key after you hear the startup chime and select the OS X partition to boot from.

Hellow sir i tried to boot my mac air with windows vista cd.. but now a q mark appers as i try to open my comp..i tried all things now i cant even boot it up from my cd... ne suggestions on how i can fix...

Here's something to try: Boot the Mac up, and as soon as you've pressed the power button, hold down the Alt (Option) key. This will bring up a list of all the volumes (places) that you can boot the machine from. You should see 'Macintosh HD", or some such hard drive - Click it and press the arrow.
If that works, you then need to go into System Preferences, and click on the 'Startup Drive' tab. Select the same Volume you selected when booting up, and the Mac will remember to boot from that one in future.
If that doesn't work, could you post some more details please? The Macbook Air has no CD drive - are you using an external one?
Hope that helped!

Mac ibook wont boot past biue screen .keep running

Try holding down ALT while booting up and select Macintosh HD. If that doesn't work try inserting your mac osx install CD or DVD restart hold down ALT. Select the CD using the arrow keys after the CD has loaded go up to the drop down menus and go to disk utility, then click on your main boot disk (macintosh HD) and under the First AID tab (if your using osx) click verify permissions and restore permissions, then click verify disk and repair disk. Try to boot up. If this doesn't work restart leaving work mac osx CD in hold down D then follow the disk checker steps. This will tell you if there are any errors on your disk (hard drive). If there are you need to get it fixed or replaced.

My macbook will turn on but not load

It sounds like the system is corrupted. What I would do is to get your instal disk to boot up holding down the c key on your keyboard. Once you have booted up go to the file menu and run disk utility to verify and repair the hard drive (if necessary). Then go to the instal menu and instal a fresh system remembering to preserve the users data so you do not wipe anything. Hopefully this will work.
