    The flashing folder indicates the computer can't find a valid system boot disk. Your hd may have gotten corrupted. If you have an external usb drive with a valid system on it, try booting from that. You might then be able to repair your internal drive with Disk Utility or some other 3rd party disk utility.

    Hello,
    I have a macbook aluminium late 2008 and suddenly one fine morning i got question mark error on startup. I tried to do disk repair with the installation CD but my internal HDD is not recognized. Is there any other way to repair it ?

    Thanks
