My problem was that my RAM was 'overcharged' (sorry I don't know the exact terms). If you are like me and you never turn off your computer, the first thing you should try is not cmd+R but ALT+CMD+P+R to reset your RAM. Hold these keys when you turn on your computer until you hear the opening sound at least twice, then let the magic happen! If this don't work, then proceed to the other suggestions. It worked for me and a friend. (How the ALT+CMD+P+R works) Then, remember to properly turn off your computer at least once a week.

Wish you luck! Had this problem a few days ago. I was browsing the web and suddenly my computer froze.

Upon restarting it, I was presented with the question mark folder. I then tried to go to my local Apple Store but you know how those lines are:(So I decided to use third-party computer repair shop. I told the repairman that I thought it could be the hard drive connector wire to which he replied that he hasn't seen that problem too often. After 2 days, he contacted me saying my computer was fixed and that the wire was in fact the problem. He also told me that the 4 circular pads on the bottom of the computer (2 of mine missing) not only acted as a base but also prevented debris and air from entering the computer.

He said the problem was likely a combination of debris and air entering the computer as well as the heat generated from using the computer in bed (bed sheets blocking the air vent from properly cooling the computer). The repair cost me $125 dollars which is a small price to pay being that none of my data was lost. Rach, the folder with the question mark means the computer cannot find the startup system. This could happens because files that are needed to boot the computer are damaged, or the drive's directory is damaged. This can also happen when your computer has a dead drive.Try rebooting your computer while holding the Command R key. This will attempt to restart the computer using the Recovery partition. If it works, you'll know that your drive isn't dead.

Use Disk Utility to repair the main partition. If it then download and install the operating system. If you can't reboot with the Command R key try using Command Option R which is an Internet recovery. If the drive's partition table were damaged but the drive itself is okay, you'll be able to use the Disk Utility program to create a new parition, install the OS, and then restore from your Backup.

You can find plenty of information about this and here. FIX I had this problem upwards of 7 or 8 times, and I fixed it by replacing the defective cable. The more times I did this, the shorter the fix held for. I have now found a workaround by using a hard drive caddy. They are available of amazon for less than £10. You remove the optical drive (for CD/DVDs) and put the caddy in its place. The hard drive is then connected to the computer via different route, bypassing the defective data cable.

It does mean you no longer have an optical drive, but that's a small price to pay to have a functional computer! I bought an early 2011 13 inch macbook pro from a pawn shop about 6 months ago. As soon as I turned it on and tried loading programs like Safari or iTunes, the computer would pinwheel. After thinking for five or ten minutes the program would load. When searching the internet, the same thing would happen. Click a link and pinwheel, five or ten minutes, page would load. Trouble shooting the issue online, a common theme was a dying hard drive.

I purchased a brand new 250 GB SSD. I've partitioned it and formatted it to mac. When I connect it internally to the macbook, and power on the computer, grey file folder with question mark.

Trouble shooting that issue online, a common theme was replace the hard drive cable. I replaced the hard drive cable. You guessed it, grey file folder with question mark.

I just want to get the computer up and running.

If that didn´t work Have you installed any 3rd party RAM? If so, remove it and try again. Also, make sure you have no external units attached via USB/FW, like keyboard, mouse, HD If this did not resolve your issue, try zapping the parameter RAM (PRAM): Press and hold the Command-Option-P-R keys as you start up. (You must press this key combination before the gray screen appears.) Hold the keys down until the computer restarts and you hear the startup sound for the second time.

Release the keys. Best of luck!!

Click to expand.I'm having the same issues. Mine is the Macbook Pro from Feb 2006 model when it first came out. I've never dropped this computer until this month. It slid off my lap and landed perfectly flat on a tile floor. The fall was only about 1.5 - 2 feet. The computer froze, so I opted to just turn it off for a bit. When I went to turn it back on, it was just the off-white screen with nothing.

After doing some research from one of our other computers, I tried holding down C among some other things. The blinking folder with the? It has been there since. My research led me to believe that my hard drive may be done.

I took it to the Apple store to see if they thought the same thing. They said it most likely is that. So I ordered my new hard drive and installed it today.

All went great with the install. It's pretty simple with the directions from iFixit and right tools, of course. When I went to boot, the folder with the blinking? Is there again.

So, I rebooted again, but this time with the OS X install disk. Still a blinking folder with?

So it won't even read the CD? It just keeps running. This is when I did some more research and found this thread and read about the ALT key during boot. I just did this and am seeing something I hadn't seen before, which is the mouse pointer on the off-white screen.

This time the CD stopped running. The computer is quiet with the mouse pointer on off-white screen.

I can move the mouse around, but don't know what to do next. So, I'm wondering these things: 1) Was my hard drive even messed up from the beginning? 2) Could there be something wrong with my optical drive since it's not reading the OS X disk? 3) I have everything from my previous hard drive backed up on an external hard drive. Could I plug that into the computer and try anything? Thanks in advance for any input shared.

I'm trying desperately to get my computer back up and running. Thank God I have everything backed up or I would be freaking out right now.

Don't know if anybody is still having issues with this but I certainly know what it feels like now. I turn on my computer this morning and I get the same symbol. Doing PRAM and option key don't work.

After Googling, I try starting the computer by using Diskwarrior. I put DW on an external thumb drive. Diskwarrior loads up fine (by pressing option at startup) but my main drive (contains my OS and data) does not show up in the Diskwarrior list. I am guessing that my HD is fried? This is so demoralizing.

Any help would be appreciated. BTW, I am trying to find a copy of my OS DVD currently and will try to boot from there. Thanks in advance. It Worked For Me I had the same problem with my Macbook.

Grey screen with flashing '?' I tried pressing ALT while restarting the laptop but this did nothing but make a 'ticking' sound from the right side of the computer. I read the comments about re-seating the HD.

The Question Mac Miller Lyrics

I'm lazy & didn't want to take my laptop apart so I lifted the right side of the computer off the table by 4 inches and dropped it twice, then restarted. A grey screen with a picture of a HD appeared. I clicked on the arrow below the HD and everything started working as if there was never a problem at all. I immediately used time machine to back up my HD to an external HD in case I'm not so lucky with future fixes. Just an FYI for anyone who dropped their computer and it resulted in the '?' If that's the case, there are generally three possibilities: 1. Something inside the computer came loose and needs to be reseated (best case you can hope for).

The hard disk was damaged (almost never applies to solid state disks). The logic board was damaged (the most common and least wanted). Generally, try not to drop your computer as it isn't covered by warranty and it is expensive to replace a logic board. If you are prone to dropping laptops then you should put out the extra money to get a solid state disk. If you are really prone to dropping laptops then you should probably get a tablet with flash storage that can take a good beating and still work (which would rule out iPad) instead of a laptop. Macbook pro flashing folder with question mark! I was on my computer early in the morning yesterday, just had 2 or 3 applications running, then all of a sudden my computer froze and i shut it off by pressing the power button thinking it`d just reset my computer, but got the flashing folder with question mark, so i took it to apple store to get it fixed.

First they said the hardware failed that it was gonna be around $200 to get it fixed, then they checked it again in the back room and find out it was the cable that connects to hardware, which probably was defective as the guy told, and changed the cable, which cost me $62 and some change, but it took them only 5 minute to change it, which was great! But i wonder if it was possible for me to do it at home, if i knew exactly what the problem was. Could i be able to buy the cable, or worse, the hardware and put it myself? I had the same problem with my Macbook.

Remove the drive and reinsert I had his problem before on my 2006-2007 MacBook and tried most of the suggestions on Apple's site and other sites online. Fearing for the worst as I had a ton of stuff on it, I eventually had to take it in for repair. Apple tech fixed it for several hundred bucks and claimed it was a 'software' error. It happend again a few months later, so this time I did more reading. I removed the battery, removed the hard drive (I also removed the memory and reseated it while I was in there) then reseated the drive again.

A Question For Facebook

Seriously, like nothing had gone wrong before. Ran Disk Utility and the disk checked out OK. Taking out the drives on these MacBooks is surprisingly easy. Ifixit.com has instructions. Get a 00phillips screwdriver before you start. Get two back up drives (usb connection is fine for average user) and back up on Time machine, or shareware of your choice, weekly.

A Question For Matthias Schleiden

You can only know the pain of having no backup when your drive is dead and unrecoverable, and the bliss of not giving a damn if the drive dies but you backed up the previous Sunday.
