    Cool
    Your system is trying to boot from the network. This was brought in another thread. It was suggest that if you leave it alone it will finally boot up. You can try to reboot the system again and press and hold the option key. You should see a window with several icons to choose from. From that window select your boot up disk. After your system boot, go to the system preferences window and choose disk start up. In that window make sure your system disk is selected.

    You have to go into the Apple logo and then I believe the prefrences (Someone please correct me if Im wrong, Im a Mac newbie) and make the change to boot from the Macintosh HD then re-boot. I had the same issue. Except when mine was booting from the netwrok my fans went on full blast and it sounded like a 747 coming into my house. Scared the crap outta me!

    try to boot from a system disk. If you can do that, your mac is not dead. It may be just a corrupt OS that needs to be reinstalled.

    I had the same thing as well. I had the "?" and a "folder" that would blink. So you have to start up again. It may take like 15mins to reboot since it may be booting from the network. After it boots you have to make it boot from the System Disk. If you still have a problem call Apple Tech Support. They will tell you what we are telling you. As long as your OS isnt corrupt it'll boot fine from the correct Start Up Disk or System Disk.
