Take your Mac OS disk (leopard or tiger, etc) and restart your mac with the disk in the drive. As soon as you hear the famous mac chime, press and hold the C key until it launches the OS on your Mac OS disk you inserted.
Once you get to the install screen, DON'T INSTALL OR DEINSTALL. Rather look at the top menu and launch the disk utilities application that you'll find in the list in the menu. Run a verify and repair disk, and then repair the permission as well.
Then do a restart. You should be back up.

My problem regarding Mac Book white-screen w/ blinking ?-folder has already been answered by kklare. Sounds good to me, but he didn't address whether your files (etc.) would be erased by reinstalling the...

Normally if you reinstall the Mac the files wont be erased and you are just repairing it.

If you dont find the HDD option while reinstallation, it would mean that the Hard Disk is Crashed.

Here is the Answer to the Problem - A flashing question mark appears when you start your Mac by Apple

Mac Book Pro Monitor Problem

Hey buds. I am a tech for apple computers and the best they are gonna do is tell you to take it in for service. There is not much more to be done since it is a MacBook Pro. I have sent several of these in for service myself. I highly suggest that if you are still under the one year warranty that comes with the computer than you call in right away. If you have the APP, still get it done sooner than later. Not much help im afraid.
