Question about Computers & Internet
My Mac was fozen, I turned it off and when I attempted to turn it back on a blinking envelope appears on the screen. I cannot find my boot disks. Is there a work around?

Another alternative is to hold the "option" key as the Mac boots up to force it to recheck possible blessed start-up disks. If your hard disk drive shows up, select it. When it boots into OS X, immediately back up your data and restart the Mac with the OS X DVD (or CD) Install Disk. When you're in the boot menu from the OS X Install Disk, select "Utilities" then "Repair drive" and select your HDD. That should help OS X repair any file permissions or data corruption that may have occurred. I would also look into getting a new HDD. It seems to me that your current one may be failing and need replacement.

hey if you have the Utilities disk or any Mac OS install disk, place that in the computer, restart and hold down the c key.
That prompts the computer to boot from the cd. If it gets past the question mark folder, then we are making progress.
At this point exit out of the installer, (unless you want to do a new install) look through the top menus, to find the utilities options that will allow you to run a diagnostic and repair. That should get you on the right path.
Let me know if this gets you back up again.
I do have some other steps that may also work if the problem persist.
Have a great one!
