My MacBook air isn't turning on

I was browsing the web and left my computer for 5 minutes and when I came back it was frozen. So I shut it down with the power button and restarted. It froze again on the login screen. After shutting off again the macbook won't turn on. No chime. The fan kept moving though. I tried the smc reset and pram reset. It turned on random tries but with the same issue of getting frozen up on the login screen. I also tried removing the battery for 10 seconds. Again wont turn on. Then I left the battery disconnected overnight and connected the charger in the morning and it chimed with a closed lid. And it went past the login screen but got stuck on loading. After that it turned on once with same issue. Now it is blank again. I can see the fan running and the ssd is extremely hot within 5 seconds of connecting the power. Where could the issue be?

Ps: it has never been dropped. No liquid damage.always been handled like a baby (until yesterday when I tried to open a screw to remove the battery)

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Time to visit an Apple Store ;-{

Your logic board has failed this should be covered under warranty!

Not under warranty..: (


I would still go to the Apple Store. There was a rash of air''s failing within a year. It maybe covered under an extended warranty program.


Ask the manager for a "warranty exception" if the store balks on the repair.


Do they give the exception if I have opened the back panel?


What they don't know can't hurt you. Just make sure you didn't leave any marks.
