Question about Computers & Internet
I have a white laptop from apple macbook air now the problem is that it has a white screen with blinking folder inside what can i do to solve this
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.

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.

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.
