Have you installed anything in between time? (i.e.,Software updates, 3rd party drivers.) Have you cleaned or organized your hd and "got rid of things you don't use/need ?" Has the laptop been serviced or opened?

Try resetting the MacBook's PMU (power management, hold down power button while the battery is out and the cord is unplugged) and possibly resetting the PRAM (hold down command + option + p + r before you hear the startup chime, it should start again, let it boot from there).

My macbook air disk drive doesn't take any cds in


Thanks for asking your question with Fixya Support. I will be glad to assist you.

For simple but in-depth troubleshooting, I suggest this link for you to review in regards to working toward resolving the Macbook Air SuperDrive CD /DVD issues.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If the guide provided above does not resolve the problem, then the issue here is that your USB Superdrive (unless you are using a different non-Apple 3rd party CD/DVD drive) is experiencing a mechanical failure.

This Apple external USB CD/DVD SuperDrive is fairly straight-forward in its use.

Now if the issue you were having had something to do with only a DVD or CD constantly ejecting automatically after you placed such a disk in the drive, that would be different.

In this case however, if the guide above does not help and you are experiencing the SuperDrive working intermittently, my advice, is to take your Macbook Air with the external SuperDrive in to your local Apple retail store Genius bar or Apple Authorized service provider for a free diagnostics to determine the root cause of the SuperDrive failing intermittently.

Feel free to reply back if you have any questions regarding the information I have provided you.

Regards,

Have a macbook pro and it has locked up, black screen now and isn't responding to mouse or keyboard


This has also happened to my Macbook Pro - nothing would work, so i basically pressed the power button until it closed down and waited a few minutes and turned it back on. The problem ( touch wood) did not come back again yet. Good luck!

I bought Macbook air 11"


This exact same thing happened to me, the only way I got my laptop to work again was to reinstall the laptop's original operating system software. Follow the instructions on this website:

By doing this your macbook should work again, but all information on your harddrive will be erased including non-standard applications such as word ect...

The remote worked fine with a Mac Pro laptop. Now that I am trying to use it with a MacBook laptop, it suddenly won't do anything with my PowerPoint program. I can use the laser pointer and that's all.


Hey dlaruel,

Assuming that you're talking about an Apple Remote:
Go to System Prefs, and find the Security panel. Near the bottom, there is a check box "Disable remote control infrared receiver".
Make sure it is NOT checked.
Next to that is a Button labeled "Pair..."
Click this button to "pair" your remote to this computer.
