upon startup, my computer shows a flashing folder with a question mark. I'm not able to start it in start mode, and the only way it changes is if I hold the option key while it's starting up, but then I only end up with a cursor on a gray screen. I read that it is related to the startup disk, but I'm not sure what else I can do.
