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

My DVD/ hdd recorder froze last night so I reset it. Now it won't turn on and is making a clicking noise inside. What do I do please?


Sounds like a power supply problem. It could be due to bad capacitors - look for bulging or domed capacitors.

The problem is due to file error when you abruptly shut down the Notebook.

Start the PC by pressing F8 upon boot up.
Select "Last known good configuration that works"
Check if it has solve the problem.

If the problem still persists, try system restore under system tools.

Blinking file folder with question mark and a DVD is stuck in it


Hello, The blinking file folder with the question mark can happen when the computer doesn't "see" your System. It can be caused by a faulty hard drive, or by a damaged operating system. You can try to reboot the mac, hold the mouse button during 20 seconds to eject the CD, then insert you installation DVD (leopard). Reboot the Mac again, and hold the "C" key. Select english, the go to the tools menu, and Disk Utility. Go to the SOS tab, select your drive and click "repair". If something red appears, it means that it has found something wrong on your hard drive. Best regards

Screen goes white, flashing a folder with a question mark


The flashing folder means that the computer can't find the boot system on the hard drive. If your girlfriend's step-dad has removed some parts of the OS, then the system will not start giving the 'flashing folder' result. You will need to re-install the OS from the system disk.
Insert the disk into the computer and it will boot from that and take you through the install procedure.
