    Well, I had the same problem, took it into an Apple store where the Mac Genius wiped the hard drive saying it was the Boot Camp Windows Partition that was corrupting something. I reinstalled everything, but then when i put bootcamp back on, the question mark made another appearance, I'm confused.

You have either one of two problems, the hard drive is dead or your system software is corrupted.

Flashing question mark on white screen

The computer is saying that it cannot find the operating system. Usually, due to hard drive broken or you got corrupt boot up files. Insert disc 1 Apple gave you then turn the thing off. Now turn the thing back on and hold and press the option key on your keyboard. Release the key when the disc loads. Select the icon of the disc and press the right arrow. Then when the disc loads, you can go select utilites and then select disc utilities. Then select your hard drive in the left top box and then select First Aid and then select Repair Disk permissions. Close out and quit and try pressing the power button again. Also, try deleting the startup programs by going to system preferences, accounts, and login items. Then click on all the programs and click delete. Sometimes these crazy startup programs interfere with the bootup. If that don't help, then you def need a new hard drive.

Whenever I attempt to save a file to my external storage it flashes a message ''unable to modify and says it is a read only''. How can I fix this?

All you have to do is find the file you want to save. Right click on the file and choose "properties". Take the check mark out of the "read only" box and click "apply". Now you should be able to save it.

Unable to get pas message at bootup

I am sorry to say but seems like your system perhaps the Windows system files got corrupted. Boot your computer up to the Windows CD and run a repair. If this does not do it, you will have to reinstall Windows again.

Unable to Open any Java based applicaiton

After un-installing some files remain on the phone, delete these file manually including Opera, and any themes that are animated.
You'll find them in File manager and Applications manager. Some junk you installed is not compatible with the N95

Major reset only as a last resort, and is not recommended.

This may not be the only thig to do.
An update of Java software might be an idea.

Flashing question mark at start up

The bootup permissions file has become corrupted in your system folder. Booting up and running an"archive and install" from the installation cd, or better, from an external hardrive, should solve the problem.
