    I've got a MacBook Air (not mine) with me at the moment and I believe it's got quite a big problem.

    Basically when you turn the Air on a black screen display for a couple of seconds with the chimes playing then a white screen appears at which point you can go no further.

    I've tried everything; pressing the Option key to try and display the two partitions on the SSD, resetting the PRAM and SMC, pressing the D key and pressing the C key to try and get the install disc started in the connected SuperDrive. Nada.

    I was wondering if anyone has any ideas on this problem before I take it to KRCS in Nottingham for diagnosis and repair? Maybe there is something I've missed or others have had a similar problem?

    Its probably a bad hard drive or the PMU on the unit is busted. Take it in for service and let us know how it turned out.
