Question: MacBook Air won't start - chimes but screen black
I have a MacBook air purchased in Sep 2013 that I've never had the slightest problem with. After shutting down normally last night, I tried to start it today, and this is what happens:
1. I press start
2. After a few seconds I hear the chime
3. Nothing else happens -- screen remains black and the keyboard is dark
I followed all the steps outlined here: My MacBook pro it does not start, including trying to reset the SMC and the PRAM, but this did not help.
Yes, I checked the brightness of the screen. Yes, it has a good connection to power, the power cord light shows amber.
I am running Yosemite 10.10.1
I really don't want to go to the Genius Bar!
MacBook Air (13-inch Mid 2013), OS X Yosemite (10.10.1)
