This is a idicator that the operating system that is in the hard drive is corupt, or hard drive has crashed. This will need to be serviced, I would recommend taking it to a apple genius bar near you for quality repair BAR NONE! They do a clean job, you do not need some fly by night pc tech cracking this open and making a mess. Take it to the apple experts you be glad you did.


Diagnosis:

Corupt OS
or crashed hard drive.

Has a question mark in the middle of the screen


The computer cannot find the operating system files to start up. Use a start-up disk or utility disk to start the computer then re-install the system files.Hold down C key while starting from disk. DO NOT REFORMAT the disk or you will lose all your files. Just do a simple System install.

Twist the Macbook body while turning it on. If that make the image come back, you have a broken logic board. There are Mac Repair Guides that show how to open a Macbook. Watch out for the ribbon cables, those tear easily. Replacement parts are usually available on Ebay. There are third party services that can do it for you, like Mac Repair NYC.

Screen goes white, flashing a folder with a question mark


The flashing folder means that the computer can't find the boot system on the hard drive. If your girlfriend's step-dad has removed some parts of the OS, then the system will not start giving the 'flashing folder' result. You will need to re-install the OS from the system disk.
Insert the disk into the computer and it will boot from that and take you through the install procedure.
