Mac OS X 10.6.5 update killed my 2010 MacBook Air

I just finished installing the 10.6.5 update on my 2010 MacBook Air using the Software Update utility. The installation process went smoothly but my 2 week old  13″ MacBook Air didn’t come back to life after the restart. It’s dead. No picture, no Apple logo, no chime, zilch! The only thing I hear is the fan when I press the on/off button long enough. During the update process the fan came on (until then I didn’t even know there was one). Maybe some component on the main-board overheated? Just speculating here.

I’m still in the process of trying all sorts of keyboard combinations to reset PRAM and stuff but so far, none have worked.

  1. The same happened to me and my MBA 13-inch. Only the fan would turn on. No startup chime, no video. Called Apple yesterday an they are replacing it

  2. Sorry to hear about that. Did it work out?
    I didn’t have time to update my MBA 11.6 yet.
