Hello,
A flashing folder at startup means that the Mac doesn't recognize your system. This can be either a hardware or software problem. The hardware problem would be the hard drive, and the software the OS.
So these are the steps you should proceed: 1) Check your hard disk by using your install DVD (press the c key at startup), choose your language, go to the utilities menu and hit Disk utility. go to SOS tab and select your hard drive on the left. Click "repair volume" and check what happens.
2) reboot, if it does not recognize the system again, reinstall it using the "archive-install" option

My cannon sd1100 says to restart it, how do you restart the camera (i lost my book)


"lens error, restart camera". Except restarting (simply turning the camera off, and then back on again) rarely corrects the problem. Here are some troubleshooting steps that you can try that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try. Some of the later steps do involve some risk to the camera, so carefully weigh your options before deciding to conduct them:

I have no problem turning on my laptop but it gets stuck in the loading screen. The wheel under the Mac Book symbol is turning and everything seems to be running just fine but the system itself is stuck...


Hi This could be one of three things. 1. a corrupted file on your HD, or 2. the directory on the HD is corrupted, or 3 a failing HD
Try starting up from your installation DVD and then running disk utility. (Insert your DVD then shut down the Mac. Restart the Mac and hold down the C key until you see the Apple logo. Once you reach the screen that asks which language you want to use, select English and then from the menu bar chose disk utility and repair HD)
If you get a message to the effect that disk Utility cannot repair the disk, run it one more time. If you still get the message then you had better locate a service centre.
Sometimes letting the installation run its course and overwriting the existing system will fix it. In this instance, you select the archive and install option, otherwise you will erase your files as the HD will be wiped.
I hope you have your files backed up.

WHAT TO DO WHEN YOUR MAC BOOK PRO FROZEN AT THE START UP SCREEN ???


Get your Mac OS DVD out, restart the machine with the disk in your optical drive, and after you hear the famous mac chime, press and hold the C key while it starts. When you reach the install window, don't install but rather open the Disk Utilities App and run a verify of your hard disk, also repair permissions. Then restart as normal. This should get you back to operation.

My mac book will turn on but it wont load up


Clicking sounds are usually the hard disk drive going bad. Replacing the drive is not for the faint of heart on the Mac Books.

Can't install mac osx 10.5.7 combo update on 10.5.2


The 10.5.7 update sometimes does several automatic restarts - depending on the mac and the previously installed OS version.
In my opinion the 10.5.7 update has been the strangest I have done.
Try this.
Hold down the power button for about 10 seconds. The MacBook should now be off - but it may restart automatically while flashing the sleep light at you - and make a long beep noise. Don't worry if that happens just let it do whatever it does. Watch the screen and follow any prompts that come up.
If the MacBook did not turn itself back on, hold the power button down again for about 10 seconds. What happens now?
Don't press any other buttons unless the computer tells you to.
If however, you end up with another 3 hour wait then something is definitely wrong and you need to take it in to a specialist.

When I turn on my Mac Book Pro


The flashing folder with hard drive symbol is telling you that the computer cannot find a bootable system folder (operating system). This could be because the hard drive is working properly, or the operating system folder has become corrupted. Try booting up from the system CD or DVD that came with your Mac Book Pro and see if it can repair your hard drive.
