Mac Mini 2009 Startup Issues - Flashing ?

  benmeirtri 18:39 07 Jan 2018

Hi guys,

I've bought a Mac Mini from back in 2009 and I have the dreaded flashing question mark on startup. I've been online and found that you can do all of these different startup methods to determine what's wrong but mine falls into none of the categories.

When I boot and hold the "option" key, instead of showing the available drives, it lets me connect to a wifi network. So when I do that, I thought it'd go through to something else but no, just stays on the screen.

Does anybody know what's going on and how I can fix the problems.
