I just lost the menu bar at the top of my Macbook Air- how do I make it active again?

Try and start your Mac in safe mode.

To do this, as soon as you power on your Mac hold the shift key until the screen turns black and text starts scrolling down the screen.
The Mac will check itself and then boot up (wait for it, it will take a few minutes.)

I have a new Macbook Air. It was working fine till yesterday. Today when i switched it ON, it is not booting. There is a blue screen and that is it...

Turn it on and let it boot as far as it can. Insert the system DVD that came with the machine. Hold down the "C" key and reboot (this will force it to boot from the optical drive - i.e., the DVD/CD). You should then come to the setup screen. From there, re-install the operating system.

I have this apple mac notebook and i completely forgot the pass word i cant even get to the start up menu

I assume you have the original Apple installation DVD that came with the Macbook.
Insert the DVD as the mac starts up and immediately hold down the alt key. After a moment or two you will get a blue screen with three icons and a rotating pizza. Wait until the pizza stops spinning and you should get a fourth icon for the DVD. If it didn't work, press the circular arrow - it means restart - and hold down the alt key again. Don't let go until the blue screen appears.
Once the DVD icon appears, click on it so that it turns black then press the arrow that points to the right. The computer will now start up from the DVD.
It is now going to start up as if there is no operating system on the computer and it assumes you are going to install a new system from the DVD. You obviously don't want to do that so what you must next do is look at the menus that have appeared at the top of the screen.
One of them is 'reset Password" or something similar.
Follow it through AND WRITE IT DOWN SOMEWHERE, don't rely on memory.
Then quit the installer and let the computer restart normally.
That should be it.

Wont turn on

Hello, It looks like a dead hard drive... To check your hard drive and see if you can repair it yourself, reboot your computer press simultaneously the "cmd" and "s" keys at startup if you see a black screen with white text, type: fsck -f and hit enter this does a "file system check", when finnished, type "reboot" and press enter. If nothing better happens, you'll certainly have to brinng it to an Apple Authorized Center Best regards
