I would start up with the CD that comes with the Macbook when you purchase it by holding the C key down upon restart (keep the C key held down through the tone until you get the spinning grey graphic). when it gets to an install screen, go to the Utilities menu and run Disk Utility on the internal hard drive. run repair on that hard drive to see if the catalog on that hard drive is corrupted. it should repair it. it if doesn't OR you don't see the hard drive in the list inside Disk Utility, you may have a failed hard drive which may need replacing.

My macbook makes a weird ticking and beeping noise from the speaker


My first generation Macbook Air would do the same thing from time to time. I never was able to figure out what was causing it; however, I never seemed to have any problems other than the funky noise that it would make periodically.

You might try doing an SMC reset as described on the Apple web site to see if that mitigates the issue: (click here)

My MacBook OSX will not open and I keep getting a file shaped folder with a question mark blinking?


Hello
That looks like your Mac does not see the System folder, for multiple reasons:
- Your hard drive needs repair / change- Your system files have bad permissions or are missing (to check this, disk utility in the Utilities folder cane good help)- Your hard drive has been erased or partitioned.
Hope that helps

Won't turn on


The problem in blank white screen is the display (LCD). Send it to a technician for repair. The blinking folder with a question mark is conflict on drivers. Have you installed a software lately? If you do please uninstall it. Maybe that is the cause of having a blank white screen.

When I turn my MacBook air on a blank White screen


Leave the Macbook air turned on until the battery goes dead. Then Connect to power and start it up. That should solve the problem. You problem was caused by not letting an update install in full.

Blank screen with blinking folder


This is a sign that the startup disk can't be found.

When you power on the computer, try holding down the "alt" key or "option" key on your keyboard.

Then after a while, it should ask you to select the location of the operating system. Select your macintosh HD. Everything should load as normal.

If this doesn't work, insert the install cd's and hold down "c" instead. This will load the cd with mac os x on it. You can then install the operating system. Please make sure you have backups. Unless the option to simply upgrade or repair your mac pops up, you will loose your files following this method.

Question mark when turn on laptop


Unfortunately, the clicking sound means that the hard drive is bad. That is why it will not boot. If it is under warranty, call Apple support. 800.275.2273 in the US.
800.263.3394 in Canada

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Turning on my macbook- all i see is white screen and 'no' sign


Apple has a troubleshooting document about this here: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1892
Normal procedure is to reset the NVRAM and PRAM then "remind" your Mac where to find the system folder. (This problem sometimes happens when the system folder is moved, renamed or deleted.)
It may be necessary to reinstall the operating system. (Fortunately, if you use the "archive and install" option, you can do this without erasing the hard drive or losing your user data.)
