I'm home for the weekend and I'm having an issue with my macbook. (Urgent because I need it for when I go back to school tomorrow!)

But I turned it on today and basically it was the light grey screen and it flashed a filefolder with a question mark in the middle - after that nothing at all happened.

Does anyone have any possible solutions to this?

You need to reinstall or repair your OS -
Put in the Install discs and try to repair the internal drive first with Disc utility.

If that does not work you need to Archive and install a new OS it will not affect your files.

ahem - where is your backup??

They're on DVD, the important stuff. My laptop is still under warranty so I just brought it to a dealer.

Thanks though, is this a common issue?
