The flashing question mark, indicates that the system cannot see the operating system.
Check for a failing hard drive
Trying booting from the Mac OS X install disc. insert the Mac OS X install disc. press the start button, while holding down the "C" key on the keyboard
Once you are running from the disc. go to Disk Utilities select the hard drive click the "repair permissions" button at the bottom.
If you get any red errors listed or it doesn't seem to finish repairing the permissions you have a failing hard drive and it will need to be replaced.
If this process finishes without any issues you will have to reinstall your operating system.

Won't turn on


The problem in blank white screen is the display (LCD). Send it to a technician for repair. The blinking folder with a question mark is conflict on drivers. Have you installed a software lately? If you do please uninstall it. Maybe that is the cause of having a blank white screen.

Try using your OS disc, insert in your computer , power it on while holding down the C key.
You should be able get it running via the CD. Access the Disk Utiltity and attempt to repair your hard drive. If no luck, Disk Warrior may get your drive back.

I have a Dell Dimension 4600 and it won't boot up. When I turn it on the green power light comes on and hard drive activity light flashes however no fans come on, the screen doesn't show the Dell logo or...


i would have to disagree with jerry, while that seems reasonable if the motherboard fan isn't running at all then whether or not the video card is ok is somewhat irrelevant.
I would agree somewhat though, i think the PSU might be a good thing to check to see if it is functional.
when you power it on does the CPU fan start or shudder at least ? that would be my first guess for a problem if you had been having any problems recently

Blank screen with flashing curser in top left hand corner,


I need a little bit more info.

Do you have a floppy disk in the floppy drive? Remove it. Do you have a CD in the CD drive? Remove it and restart your notebook.

Put your ear on the left side of the track pad. Do you hear any clicking sounds? Do the same for the right side. Do you hear any clicking sounds? If you hear any clicking sounds, and it seems to be constant, you may have a failed hard disk drive.

Try these thing and let me know what happens. Binary Bob
