Could be a lot of things. Try running Disk Utility from your install DVD:

After that, if issues persist, try booting in Safe Boot Mode:

http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1455

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:

http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2129

..and then reinstall:

http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1710.

If none of these steps resolve the issue, it will likely need repair at an Apple Authorized Service Provider or Apple Store.

Sadly enough there's no other way to get back into your installation. If you need to backup your data, either boot into windows with the bootcamp drivers installed or take out your hard drive and plug it into a pc. Once you have a backup completely shut down your macbook and plug it in. Press and hold CMD+R and turn the Macbook on, it should now boot into recovery, where you can format and reinstall OS X.

Macbook Air trackpad moving by itself


Boot the computer into recovery mode and see if the track pad is still moving around by itself.

Hold down the OPTION key when turning on the computer, and select the Recovery icon to boot into recovery mode.

Here is a link that will guide you throw it in detail How to Boot Into Lions Recovery Mode

The purpose of booting into recovery mode is to see if the track pad is still acting up. If the track pad is operating normal in recovery mode, then it might indicate an issue with your operating system. If the trackpad is still having issues in recovery mode, it would indicate that your trackpad issue is a hardware issue and it will require you to take it into Apple for further diagnosis.

Hope this helps!

Unplug the power cable from back of the printer ( while the printer is on ) and wait for 30 seconds. Connect the cord to printer.

Check for a failing hard drive
Trying booting from the Mac OS X install disc. insert the Mac OS X install disc. press the start button, while holding down the "C" key on the keyboard
Once you are running from the disc. go to Disk Utilities select the hard drive click the "repair permissions" button at the bottom.
If you get any red errors listed or it doesn't seem to finish repairing the permissions you have a failing hard drive and it will need to be replaced.
If the repair permissions finishes without any problems. You will have to reinstall the operating system.

Sometimes my mac air will not boot up when turned on. The screen simply stays black. Eventually it does boot up. What causes this and should I take it in?


Does it always eventually boot up? If so, I don't think it's a serious problem. Your OS may need to be restored. Do you still have your original install CD? There are detailed instructions on how to do the restore online. If the problem get's worse and it doesn't turn on even after restore, you may have a logic board issue, Here is an Macbook Repair Guide that shows how to open a Macbook. If you want somebody else to do it for you go to Macbook Repair.

My macbook pro will not finish booting up


Reset the PRAM first. Hold down Control+Command+P+R when booting up before the chime. Let it chime three times and let go.

APPLE MACBOOK WOULD BOOT. THE BOOT CD IS


unfortunately on the newer mac computer including the macbook you cannot boot to open firmware but there are other options
option 1)simply try holding down the mouse button or track pad button during boot after the first chime is sounded this will instruct the computer to eject the cd through the firmware
option 2) you can bypass the cd boot by holding down the option key after the first boot chime another simple solution this will allow you to choose a startup disk during...startup after which you can try the eject button on the keyboard or select the disk in finder and eject via trash can or eject symbol(symbol located in the open folder view of finder)
option 3) there is also a manual eject button though it may be harder to locate as they have change placements of it over the years however it can usually be found by probing the top center or far right of the cd slot with a paper clip just be gentle you don't want to damage an expensive piece of equipment by just carelessly jamming metal in it
you may want to try searching apple with your particular model and search for manual cd eject
best wishes, Crash
