    My MacBook Air had its main logic board replaced a few weeks ago. After I got it back, it was crashing all the time whilst using the internet browser etc. I decided to wipe the laptop and try to reinstall from new.

    When it boots, it boots to a folder with a question mark, then I press command and R, it loads to internet recovery fine, no crashing. I get to disk utilities and I press on reinstall OS X and I get so far to pressing reinstall but it then crashes and the only way to turn it off is to fully shut it down.

    I have done this around 20 times but every single time, it freezes. I just can't find any solutions?

    Thanks in advance.

    Welcome to iMore.

    I suggest you take it back where you had the logic board repaired. This should have never been crashing after the repair. The folder with the question mark is telling you the computer can't find the OS. But you can't install the OS either. Something is mostly likely going on hardware wise.
