    Hi all,

    I've got a problem with my MacBook Air from 2011.
    I was working today on it when the screen suddenly went black.

    After that I am not able anymore to start it.

    The only thing that seems do work is the MagSafe indicator.
    The battery is now fully charged (as the indicator shows).

    When I tried to reset the SMC it worked as well (indicator went from orange to green after releasing the buttons).

    I tried also a SMC-Bypass, but it didn't worked.
    Does someone have another idea what I can try?
    I have to buy a screwdriver to open it and disconnect the battery.

    Thank you so much.

    EDIT:

    Now its making the startup chime and the monitor is turning grey for one second. After that its turning off immediately.

    Yes, thanks. I will go there, but I wanted to avoid that in the first place.

    The mac bootet up today normally. Everything was fine for 1 minute. Than the same thing startet again.

    Now its "completely" dead again.

    Try a new software install, if that doesnt work it might be the logic board / videocard.
