Could be a lot of things. Try running Disk Utility from your install DVD:<br /><br />http://support.apple.com/kb/ts1417<br /><br />After that, if issues persist, try booting in Safe Boot Mode: <br /><br />http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1455<br /><br />...if it persists after that, your best bet is to reset the System Management Controller; <br /><br />http://support.apple.com/kb/ht3964<br /><br />...and then reset the Parameter RAM: <br /><br />http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1379<br /><br />If it keeps happening after that, try a reinstall: <br /><br />http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1710. <br /><br />

Try starting with the l/h shift key down, this does some housekeeping on the HD. Failing this boot from the CD and in the utilities folder in the menu bar along the top select utilities and then disk utility and select your HD then select repair disk, after that run repair permisseins. when done, can take a while, go to start up disk and select your HD and restart.

Can't boot up my mac book air


hm, try leaving it on over night, sometimes if you turn your laptop of from the power or hold down the power button when allot of programs are running or if you get the program not responding thing happen this can mess up your laptop and will take ages to boot up,
or it might never boot again
so you will need to take the install cd/dvd that came with the laptop, insert it into your laptop, reset it again, then as u hear that sound apples make as you turn it on, hold down C untill it boots into the cd/dvd then go from there.
