Question about Computers & Internet
Before doing anything else, make a backup of your entire hard drive. Use either Time Machine or cloning software - (SuperDuper or Carbon Copy Cloner).
The next thing to do is a FSCK on the hard drive. Boot your machine with the original install DVD, select the top menu item "Utilities", "Disk Utility" and do a verify and repair on the entire hard drive. Also run the repair permissions option while you're at it.
The reason for all of the above is that your hard drive might be acting up, thus it's best to find out now before data is lost. Don't forget to make a backup first!

The flashing folder with hard drive symbol is telling you that the computer cannot find a bootable system folder (operating system). This could be because the hard drive is working properly, or the operating system folder has become corrupted. Try booting up from the system CD or DVD that came with your Mac Book Pro and see if it can repair your hard drive.

Remove the RAM chips and re-insert. Now try.
Go to System Preferences, Accounts, click on your user account, then click on login items and select all the choices, and then click on the - icon box. Now try this thing out. Nothing still? Shut the thing down and wait 5 seconds. Now remove your battery and make sure your AC adapter is not plugged in. Now press and hold the power button for 5 seconds. Now put back in your battery and plug back in the AC adapter and power this beast up. Any luck? No? Power down and wait 5 seconds. Now press the power button and immediately press the apple logo key-option key which is next to the apple logo key-the P key- and the R key at the same time. Wait for 3 bong sounds and then you can release the keys. Still nothing? Your fu.kd bud, because you got an expensive paper weight. You gonna have to repair or replace the logic board.
