The issue is that the laptop cannot find a disk to boot from. This could be due to a number of things. Failed disk, corrupt disk, corrupt system files on the disk. If you have a system disk and an internal or external dvd reader, you may be able to boot from that. If not, then you will probably be visiting an Apple store, or at least a computer repair shop that repairs apple computers. If you have no backup, you risk losing your files.

SOURCE: Macbook Error

It's not finding your operating system. Could be failed hard drive, corrupted registry or a start up disk error. Have you tried starting on the Macbook Pro install disk 1? If not, insert the disk while it's starting up, it and hold down "c" key. When I comes to the start up window, click the right arrow button, proceed to the install window but don't install! Instead select "disk utility" under the pull down menu (upper left hand corner of the screen). Select the hdd in the upper window and click the "repair" button. Repeat the repair again after is finishes. If there is no hdd icon in the upper window, the hdd is probably fried and needs to be replaced. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: my macbook has a blank white screen, and then it

Your macbook is not locating your hardrive.
turn off your laptop, insert the Mac OS disc in the drive, and then reboot while holding down the c key to allow it to boot from the OS on the DVD.
Then use the disk utilities application from the desktop menu and to a disk repair on your hard drive and then restart.

SOURCE: 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.

My macbook air start to show me a white screen white a blinking folder inside


Sound like you have an issue with either your hard drive or the operating system has lost the plot. Try this OS About OS Recovery

If you are able to access the recovery partition then use the disk utility to check the disk.

If this does not work then take the computer to an Apple repair centre, if it's still covered by warranty the disk might be replaced under warranty.

If it's not covered, you could try using DiskWarrior 4 The Disk Utility for Mac Disk Repair Mac Directory Repair... which has allowed me to recover disks that have not been able to be repaired with Apple's disk utility.

How to download and install programs on macbook


The easiest way to download and install programs is using the App Store. Sign in with your Apple ID or create one if you haven't already and download or buy any app you want. If you don't have the App Store installed on your MacBook then you probably have an older version of the operating system. In this case browse to a website containing an app you wish to download, follow the instructions on the website to download it and then open the downloaded file (it is usually in the 'Downloads' folder). Once you open the downloaded file you are either going to get an installation window or a window with the downloaded app inside. If you get the installation window, just follow the instructions on the screen to complete the installation. If you get the window with the app inside, then just drag the app from that window to whatever folder you wish to save it to (usually the 'Applications' folder). Once that's done, locate your app and open it.

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.
