Hi,
This is my first post here so: HI!
I've came here because of a devasting problem I've had with my MB.
One Day I left my MB turn on all night in the morning I tried to use it again but It was like freeze so I turned it off (holding the power button) and I left.
In the afternoon when I wanted to use it again, a folder icon with a question mark on it appeared, after a while it turns off.
I've tried everything it says on the apple support page and it's not working.
I have try to boot from the Mac Osx DVD and trying like to reinstalling but I get no HD showing.
I use Disk Utility and the only thing it displays is: Ma****a DVD (No HD either)
I don't know what's the problem.

another thing! After the normal white screen (when you turn it on) a weird noise(like a ta-ta-ta-ta) comes from the HD(I guess).

Please HELP!
QUOTE Thanks

From your description it appears you may have lost the drive. If you are still under the Apple warranty, take it in and have it fixed.
