Flashing Question Mark (Serious Error)

You turn on your Mac and instead of getting a Happy Mac, you screen reflects a Computer with a Flashing Question (?) Mark.

Try to boot off the System CD that came with your computer. Hold down the C key to make the Mac boot off the CD-ROM.

Run the Program DISK FIRST AID, located in the Utilities Folder. Click on your hard drive and click repair.

Once any repairs are made, restart the computer and eject the CD-ROM. All should be back to normal

IN CASE THIS DOES NOT SOLVE THE PROBLEM, bring the Mac in for Service.

ANYTHING you do after this repair CAN RESULT in Data LOSS.
