Got it Diagnosed turns out the lvds cable had some broken wires where the hinge on this machine was broken with the bad lvds cable CONNECTED TO THE LOGIC BOARD i was getting a white screen with no apple logo and the macbook air would not display anything other than a white screen even with trying to boot to a usb holding option.


i disconnected the lvds cable from the logic board because even when i tried to use an external monitor nothing would happen with it still connected ( wires being broken must have grounded the video signal or broken a feedback loop?) as soon as i disconnected the lvds cable from the logic board and tried an external monitor again i got a BLINKING FLASHING FOLDER ON THE EXTERNAL MONITOR SUCCESS!!!

i was even able to boot to a usb (in order to do this on a macbook air you must disconnect the hard drive cable from the logic board)

Most likely a bad hard drive. Try booting from the original system installation disk or an external USB source.
