When I turn on my powerbook g4, 15 in, it does not not get past the first screen (just grey minus the loading apple). i've waited about 10 minutes with the grey screen and now all that is on the screen is the mac smiley and blinking question mark over a file folder. I have powered up and down multiple times, checked the battery, etc... and nothing seems to work. There also seems to be an issue with CD/DVD drive, its making a horribly loud clicking and vibrating noise on powerup. i do not have any cd's for this computer for a repair because i got it from school and im worried that if i bring it in for them to look at i will be in trouble....Can anyone offer some help?

Powerbook G4, Mac OS X (10.5)
