It usually means that there is a problem with the hard drive and your system must be reinstalled. The first step would be to put in the OS X disk that came with your computer and then restart. you can either hold down the Option button or hold down the C button while starting for the computer to let you chose the disk for startup. Once you have started from the disk you can try some of the disk utilities which will help you check to see if your disk can be repaired.

Try Googling these phrases and looking for more detailed help: "questionmark at bootup apple ibook", "reinstall OS X macbook", "run disk utilities OS X". These are good places to start when trying to figure out what is wrong. I like using Disk Warrior, a pay program that is excellent for recovering seemingly dead computers.

The garmin was droped , screen is white with some marks on the inside?


If your device is currently experiencing the following symptoms it may need to come in for service/repair:
  • The device powers on and freezes at the Garmin logo with no trademark or copywrite info displayed on the device which normally shows up below the logo. The device will not display the Main Menu and will not go into Mass Storage Mode.
  • The device powers on and freezes at the Garmin logo and then flashes a white screen briefly. The device then begins a loop of showing the Garmin logo and then flashes the white screen over and over again. The device will not display the Main Menu and will not go into Mass Storage Mode.
  • The device powers on and then freezes or shuts down when displaying the Loading Maps screen.
For service/repair of a device due to the three symptoms listed above please select "No - I would like to submit a follow up email" below this article. You will be taken to an email form that you can submit to obtain a Return Material Authorization number.
Please note: It is important to completely fill out the form with as much information as possible including:
  • Market Name: On the Road
  • Serial Number (listed on the bottom of the device)
  • Question Type: Repair Information
  • Provide a short description of your problem or question: nuvi frozen on Garmin Logo

Sounds like a GPU problem to me.

You can go diy approach which involves taking the laptop totally apart and then heating up the GPU with a heat gun.

If you google you'll find guides for this.

Best of luck!

you need to have some one open the flat panel up and check the capacitors on the vga/ inverter card and see if they are domed shaped if so then you have blown capacitors and they are not a difficult fix but pricey as the electronics guys don't come cheap
