Hello Joe and welcome to the forum, but you've made a terrible first post - please review How to Write a Quality Post - :)

We cannot provide much help w/o knowing the specifics of your situation: 1) What Apple computer are you using (type/model/year); 2) What OS X is installed; 3) Have you had this problem before; 4) Holding the 'option' key, what else did you press; 4) What have you done to solve this problem; and 5) Do you have a backup (e.g. Time Machine) - an answer to these questions will be quite helpful - Dave
