Folder with question mark at startup
Posted 20 January 2011 - 06:44 PM
As for my questions, I'd like to know if this is actually a problem or what the deal is. I ran the disk utility and it says my hard drive is ok, went ahead and repaired and verified the disk permissions just for the heck of it, and that also turned out ok. If it's nothing that's fine, could someone verify for me as to what to do for the boot up to run normally, and by normally I mean without the folder/question mark icon showing first on boot up. Even if it means having to format and re-install that's fine, I just want to be sure that whatever is done will fix the problem.
For a little background, OS X Leopard was installed, and when I installed Snow Leopard I think I made a mistake by formatting and installing Snow Leopard when I should have done an upgrade, and this is possibly why the folder/question mark icon displays at boot up? Could someone please verify this?
Lastly, every once in a while when I click on the battery icon it displays the service battery tab. It's not always there, gone for sometimes weeks. Should I test it, or just leave it be? FYI this is one of the first MacBooks 1,1 (in system profile) 1.83 Intel Core 2 Duo
