Question about Apple MacBook 13"White /2.0Ghz Intel Core2 Duo White/2GB (2x1gb)/80GB/SuperDrive (Z0DT) Mac Notebook
I start the comp, the apple appears and it dings and then all of the sudden it blinks a folder with a "?" on it and it has a buster symbol around it.
how dod I fix this? what is it?
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.

That is never good since the Mac cannot find a usable operating system folder. You will need to start the computer from a system CD/DVD and repair your harddrive with disk tools.
