You'll have to boot to a OS drive and run disk utility to repair the drive.
If the drive doesn't come up or it can't be fixed more than likely it has crashed / failed / is failing and will have to be swapped out with a working SATA drive.
Let me know if you have any specific questions or advice. I'm an Apple Certified Tech ;)

I have trouble downloading on MacBook Pro. Everytime i push the download key it goes to a black screen and doesnt download. I've checked the downloads folder but there is nothing there. I can download...


this sounds like a temp folder has your downloads and some software that is set to open at start up is keeping your files.
i suggest making a account or looking thorough your previous downloaded files

When I start my macbook a blue screen appears with a folder with a ? mark in it flashing


That message means that it can't find the start up folder and or your hard drive has crashed.

If you insert your OS disk or a copy of Disk Warrior you can boot to the cd / dvd by holding down the "C" key and then powering up the Macbook.

Let me know if you have that OS cd and then we'll go from there.

Blinking file folder with question mark and a DVD is stuck in it


Hello, The blinking file folder with the question mark can happen when the computer doesn't "see" your System. It can be caused by a faulty hard drive, or by a damaged operating system. You can try to reboot the mac, hold the mouse button during 20 seconds to eject the CD, then insert you installation DVD (leopard). Reboot the Mac again, and hold the "C" key. Select english, the go to the tools menu, and Disk Utility. Go to the SOS tab, select your drive and click "repair". If something red appears, it means that it has found something wrong on your hard drive. Best regards
