My 2011 MBA worked last night without a probem and I charged it for the first time on a MB charger mybe this is the reason why. This morning it wouldnt turn on. I saw the sign in page (where you enter your password when the screensaver goes on) Went to get a coffee and Nothing! when I plug in the magsafe The Led is green.

I tried the following:

Press the power button for 10 seconds
Tried 3 differents magsave adapters
Reset the pram (did nothing when I pressed the buttons)
reset SMC (Pressed the button no reaction)
Took the battery and the Ram out of the MBA and reinstalled them.

I´m working on a boat at the moment where we travel a lot and I called all the apple stores in the area but they need 1 to 2 weeks to look at it, so this is not aan option. However i can get all the parts no prob.

thanks a million!!!

The thing is, unless you can let Apple look at it you won't have a computer. Either you sit on a computer that won't turn on for 2 weeks or you give it to Apple to take a look. I think the choice is clear. I don't know what happened, but I'd be taking it into Apple.

The problem is that I won´t return to the places that I go to. I guess that i´ll have to live without or buy another laptop:(

thanks anyways!

Do you have a home address? They'll allow you to ship it and ship it back to a verified address. This sounds incredibly silly for you to buy a new laptop just because you travel.

Are your ports of call within the same country where you live? If so, Apple can send it out from one store, and then ship it back to your house when it is ready (or to the store where your final stop is). My guess is that something shorted. Hopefully it isn't the entire logic board that is fried. If it's still within warranty that is one thing, but a logic board replacement out of warranty runs $755 in the US.
