Question about Apple MacBook Air
I have macbook for about a year now and i was out for few day wen i come back trying to turn on my macbook air it has a white screen with blinking folder inside what can i do to solve this problem
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.

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: 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.

Hard drive is dead or the signal from the hard drive is not being read by the ide controller. I'm working on a MacBook 13 inch right now with the same issue. I had a spare hard drive and a windows Vista disc, so I installed the hard drive and inserted the vista install disc and the laptop loaded and installed Vista on the Mac with no issues. I took the hard drive from the Mac and attached an adapter to it and ran it through a usb on another laptop and the laptop could not read the files on the drive....so, the drive was bad.
