Hmm, seems it can't find the OS to boot (start up) from.
Possible yr hard drive got disconnected some way? That would cause this...

If you have a boot-able CD/DVD, try starting with that (hold the 'C' key down while starting up, which tells it to boot from the CD/DVD drive).

If that boots OK, you may need to reinstall the Mac OS, (which, vs Windows, will not destroy the world as you know it on yr Mac)

Hello; when i trun on my macbook the screen did not show the table which has safari and msn and all the programs? can any one help me plz?

I think you mean the Dock at the bottom of your screen with program icons on it, right?

If so, move your mouse all the way to the very bottom of the screen. Your Dock should appear. It may be set to hide automatically.

If you don't want it to hide, click on the Apple menu (in the top, left corner of your screen), then click "System Preferences". Next click "Dock". Finally, click the button to the left of where it says "Automatically show and hide the Dock." That should get rid of the check mark that is there and stop your Dock from hiding.

Good luck!

I have a macbook laptop with damaged dvd cd drive. I am getting a white screen and folder with a question mark when i start up computer. What is the problem and how do i fix it?

The folder with the question mark indicates that the computer is unable to boot (start) from the hard drive. I would ordinarily tell you to put in your system disc and boot from it to use Disk Utility to fix your drive. But you say your DVD burner is broken.

1. Hold down the power button to turn off your machine.
2. Hold down Command and S together and press the power button to turn the machine back on.
3. It will boot to a black screen with white text. Once it gets done, type

fsck -fy

and press the Return key. This will check and hopefully fix your drive.
4. Once it's done, it will either say, "This disk appears to be okay." (or something like that, or "File system has been modified." If it says that the file system has been modified, return to step 3 and type fsck -fy again (and then press Return).
5. Once you see the message that the disk appears to be okay, type


and press the return key.

Hopefully your machine will boot up successfully. If so, please leave a comment so we know it worked (and please give me a good rating). If not, leave a comment with details and we'll try something else.

Good luck!

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.

Intel Macbook Flashing Folder, wont boot DVD

Hi yeddi,333,

You say you originally booted into what you assumed was the install screen and tried to install from disks - then you later mention borrowed 10.5 disks - - was this one set of disks or two?

Unless those install disks (esp. the 10.5 disks) were for that version of MacBook, they likely won't work - different chip-sets from MacBookPro, iMac, etc. You'll need to either get the right recovery disks, or find someone who is able to re-image your computer via Target Disk Mode or using NetRestore, or some similar software product. If you don't have these resources, it's likely fastest/easiest to get the right install/recovery disks from Apple - - since they already sold the OS with that computer, you can maybe get a recovery done by them - - I'd call and ask.

Also - - does this MacBook have AppleCare (3 year extended warranty) - - if so, see if you can exercise that for actual hands-on assistance.

I'd also be sure that the hard drive was properly replaced and is actually working - - why was it replaced originally?

You're probably going to need to contact Apple for some assistance - go to this site to schedule phone support.

or go into your nearest Apple store and show it to one of the "geniuses" at their tech support desk.

If I can be of further assistance, or if you have questions about any of my response(s), please let me know before rating me.

If this solves the issue, please rate it accordingly. My goal is to earn a "FixYa" rating from everyone I help.

Thanks for using,
