- iPhoto '11 v9.4.2 & OS 10.7.5 I know this is a "software" problem but it does require a DIY repair... The script for Microsof...
- Have you tried an SMC and PRAM/NVRAM reset? Can you run AHT? If this answer is acceptable please remember to return and mark it.
- Believe it or not the easiest way would be to install a new optical drive. Getting the old fiber off, finding a suitable replacement, and adhesive will be a real chore. You'd need a fusion material that will not shred or tear (leaves any cotton, cloth or foam out) as shredded bits would get sucked (carried into) the inside of the drive. Insufficient thickness would allow for scratch to the bottom of your optical media. Though this is the DIY repair/reduce/r
ecycle advice site on the interment - IMO not every job qualifies. (Messing with CRT's and Li-ion batteries are two that immediately spring to mind as best left to professionals who know what they are doing). If this answer is acceptable please remember to return and mark it.
- Damage is always a possibly - I would suggest you go over all your connections again. Many times reassembly issues trace back to a connection that was incomplete. Next thing would be to try an SMC reset. If this answer is acceptable please remember to return and mark it.
- Help us help you. The more complete the description of your problem is (what MBA you're using - there are many versions going back to '08, what OS you're using, what Application you're using, a full compete description, the text or screen shot of any error messages) the more assistance we can provide, and, the sooner we can provide it.. One reason could be a full boot volume - you should have 10-20% free space on it for VMEM and swap files, the more free space the better. Other reasons -corrupt or failing HD, wireless/networ
k signal, over heating, too many open programs, insufficient RAM. If this answer is acceptable please remember to return and mark it.
- Probably needs a new power supply check the diagnostic lights. Third link, on page 155… says 08 but 09 similar. If this answer is acceptable please remember to return and mark it.
- With no device found error I'm thinking the sound card (i believe it's part of the DC-in board on this model) is bad. A workround: use a USB audio dongle USB audio is separate from analogue audio… the adapter would have a built in mic and line/headphone audio out jack. If this answer is acceptable please remember to return and mark it.
- If you are running 10.5x try to boot to the repair/recovery partition and run AHT. If that fails see if it will target boot (I'm suspecting a HD failure since it partially boots sometimes). If Target boot is unsuccessful and you have access to more than one Mac you can pull the HD put it in an External Case and see if it's damaged, and if you can repair that damage (munnged MBD vs hardware failure) If you have another boot volume try booting from it. If this answer is acceptable please remember to return and mark it.
- Original Apple charger or generic replacement? Over on Apple Discussions there's a group who have had the transformers in the charger go bad or overheat…(you'r
e not alone) What country are you in, are you using a surge protector or UPS? (low voltage is as damaging to computer electronics as surge voltage… only a UPS protects against voltage drops). How you treat the charger (batteries) and cords can cause failure… Contact Apple and see what they say. If this answer is acceptable please remember to return and mark it.
- Pull the HD put it in a different machine or in an external case and you can access it all (provided the HD is not damaged) If this answer is acceptable please remember to return and mark it.
- Is this what you're looking for? If this answer is acceptable please remember to return and mark it.

Quote from herman428:
If I replaced the logic board and still get nothing past the Apple logo, how do I know it's a faulty cable and which one... ? Is it possible that it's the hard drive ? The hard drive seems to be active and spinning when listening to it close up against my ear. Not sure which way to go here.

When I changed out my battery on my Video iPod I messed up the cable connection for the battery on the logic board. So I replaced my logic board but the new logic board only comes up in a Sad Face icon. It makes a click when I try to reset the iPod each time. What do I need to do now? I'm stuck!
Quote from Baaald:
I have a problem with my macbook A1181.
When the laptop is running, if I press hard the keyboard or the case on the left or right, my computer shuts down immediately.
At the same time, if I press hard the keyboard, the Shutdown window pops up asking me if I want to shutdown the pc and in some cases after some seconds it shuts down anyway.
I can't use my laptop anymore.
Thanks! This website is terrific!
