Hi. The RAM in my mid-2009 MacBook Air has failed. I knows this because I'd seen various symptoms for a while, and now at start-up I only get the three beeps which, by my research, denotes RAM failure. I have a newer Mac. I am happy to let the 2009 go. But I would like to be able to get the photos and Word documents off the dead Air. I am trying to avoid paying Apple to replace the RAM. Is there a way to extract the hard drive content? Can I do some sort of external RAM boot? Can I disassemble the Air, pull out the hard drive and then somehow get the content off directly? (I don't mind risking breaking the Air. Just need the hard drive content.) These are probably dumb questions but I know little about this, obviously. Thank you for your feedback.
