    i have a macbook air. the latest model.

    my mac stopped to work, and the mouse icon on the screen became like Colorful carousel.
    i pressed a long clicking on the boot control and the mac turn off completly.

    when i turn on the mac again he show the apple logo with the white Background and a second later, he show a lot of words, letters, and numbers like on Terminal App.

    If you get a screen that looks like this:
    [​IMG]
    It's called a kernel panic. If it doesn't happen again, or very infrequently, don't worry about it.
    "You need to restart your computer" (kernel panic) message appears (Mac OS X v10.5, 10.6)
    Mac OS X 10.7 Help: If “You need to restart your computer” appears

    Also, you may have better success in attracting responses to your thread, and you'll make your thread easier to find for those browsing the forum for the same answers, if you change your thread title to something more descriptive. To do so, click the "Edit" button on your original post, then click "Go Advanced" and you will see where to edit the thread title.

    Here is how you take a screen shot and post it.

    Yes, it looks like you had a kernel panic. Just turn off your Mac and turn it back on. If it doesn't happen again, I wouldn't worry about it. If it does, the links I posted will help you debug the problem.

    Go to disk utility and repair and see if that helps.

    You must have been messing around with System files. This can be solved by reinstalling the OS.

    BTW, is that a Harman Kardon Soundsticks? You must be enjoying beautiful music.
