    Recently my 2009 Macbook air will not boot. I used it about a week ago and have had no apparent problems. Tried to turn on yesterday and nothing- no fans, hdd kicking on, power to screen. Plugged in power cord thinking it was dead and the indicator displayed green, which I knew was incorrect. Still displaying green when I plug in charger. Sounds like it may be a mobo problem to me. Any helpful advice?

    I live a little ways away from the nearest Apple store so I was hoping not to drive around 2 hours for someone to tell me there is nothing they could do.

    HI
    I had a dead macbook air mid 2009. It has a nvidia GPU with know issues related to its solder balls.
    I took out the mother board and heated the GPU to 200 degree over 10 min. Tempereture monitor under heat process and surounding sheelded from the heat.

    Let me know if you want a detaild description.
