My mac is showing me a grey screen with a flashing folder icon in the middle alternating the finder icon and a question mark.I dont have the osx disc


Hi there,
The flashing folder icon is telling you that your Mac cannot locate a working operating system to startup.

You may be having a software problem that is keeping your Mac from recognizing your operating system, or a hardware problem that is keeping your Mac from connecting to your hard drive (where the operating system lives).
Since you don't have access to a CD/DVD of the Mac operating system, ff you have an external hard drive with a working operating system on it, try connecting it to your Mac with FireWire and startup the computer holding down these keys: Command (Apple) +option+shift+delete. This will force the Mac to attempt to startup from the external drive.
If none of these things work, we would be glad to help at TechRestore. You can use coupon code "TWEET" for $10 off any drive replacement service. We offer free shipping options and local pickup in your neighborhood. http://techrestore.com
Hope this helps!

My trackpad is not working after installing tiger


you might have to find the drivers on the website and instal them using a external mouse and keyboard.and a flash drive.there is also the possibility that there are no avalable drivers since macs make there cds individually for each computer.the comp and cd are a married couple you have to use the cd it came with.

Grey screen folder icon flashing and alternating with ?


The computer can't find an operating system. Start up from the OSX disc and check the drive with 'Disk Utility'. The system may have got damaged, or the drive may need to be repaired. Run 'First Aid'.

Apple iBook G4 Track Pad (Mouse) not funtioning


I think the first thing you should do is make all updates. I know that in some versions of the iBook G4, the trackpad does not work after installing OS X 10.4 (Tiger) before you do the updates. Update your OS X first. secondly, does the button work? Does the trackpad show up in the System Preferences menu? (under keyboard and mouse). It's very unlikely that the trackpad came unhooked unless someone has opened up your computer. If they have, there is a really good chance that they didn't plug it back in, because it's a hassle and easy to forget.

Please help me


Nothing can be more frustrating than turning on your Mac only to find that it won't start up. Instead of seeing the Finder, you see a blue or gray screen, an icon of a broken folder, a kernel panic, a flashing question mark, or a computer that just sits there. What can you do? Don't worry. It could be a simple issue that you can fix yourself. Follow the steps in this document to diagnose and fix the problem:

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
