The problem was that the RAM was bad. I knew this because the MacBook Air gave me the "Three Beeps of Death" and I researched online in order to find the solution. I had to fix it because I wanted to see if reflowing the solders by heating up the logic board would work or not, and it did. It was a recovery attempt and an opportunity for me to experience DIY repair of technology.
The repair was straightforward, with no major issues along the way. I put the logic board, covered with aluminum foil, into a frying pan with the lid closed and set the heat to low for 20 minutes. I felt that putting the MacBook Air back together was easier than taking it apart. Overall it was a great repair experience and would be glad to do it again.
Yes. Don't be afraid to fix things by yourself, especially technology, because it gives you hands-on experience at how technology works and can be fixed. It was quite easy and I didn't feel stressed or under pressure that the board will be even more "dead" after reflowing it. Also, record yourself doing the repair, you will look back at it with great pride.
