    I get the flashing folder with ? when I try to boot up on my MacBook Air 2011. So I boot up holding down "option" key and I get into internet recovery. I choose my network and it starts download, I get a spinning glob with progress bar under it. After it finishes it goes into Mac OS X utility so I went to disk utility and didi a reapir on hard drive, everything checked out okay, so I exited it and went to re install OS X and I go through the terms and start the download but after 15 seconds or so system shuts down. I have booted up using the "D" key to do a apple Hardware Test and everything came back OK on that also. But every time I try the Internet recovery I get the same results, system shuts down right after Lion starts to download.

    Any suggestions on whats to try next or why system is acting this way?

    Not from this distance. It sounds like a hardware problem.
    You need to find someone local to you who knows about Macs, or book an appointment at the Genius bar.
