Question about Apple MacBook Mac Notebook
Insert your installation disk that came with the mac and hold the "c" key while turning it on, this will force it to boot from the cd drive. Choose your language from the selection screen, I'm going to assume English, and choose Utilities --> Disk Utility from the drop-down menu on the top of the screen to open the Application. From there select the Mac partition of your Hard Drive on the left which should be called "Macintosh HD if you did not change it. In the "First Aid" tab, you will see two buttons on the bottom right hand corner of the window, "Verify Disk" and "Repair Disk." First Verify the disk, then Repair it, if it does not work at that point you will likely need to format your Hard Drive. If you do not want to lose any work and can't retrieve it any other way; get an external laptop HD case (specs are 2.5 inch by standard 9 mm, but could hold thicker like the 12 mm Western Digital Blue Caviar line above 500 GB) from Radioshack or similar, it should run you about $25. Transfer or backup any data you want to keep to your desktop, external or similar from there and format the disk and reinstall Mac OS. Cheers.
