Recently I started experiencing problems with my relatively new macbook. First the airport stopped working, but functioned normally after boot. A few days after that I lost airport connection again and the computer refused to boot (froze after the tone) I tried again in safe mode, succesfully, but the computer would not recognise any external devices, thus preventing me from saving valuable data + still no airport connection. Because of a monstrous work schedule I had to leave it at that and return to it later. Now, two days later, my macbook will not boot, even from disc or in safe mode. So, is it safe to say that my macbook is macdead?
