View Full Version : ibook question mark folder

Jul 9, 2011, 08:21 PM
I have an ibook computer at startup a question mark folder pops up, but not always sometimes the operating system does startup. However, after anywhere from 10-30 minutes it freezes up and when i restart the question mark comes up again. I have switched out the hard drives put a new operating system on it and it's still doing the same thing i'm wondering if anyone can give me suggestions about what it could be.

Here is the support article (http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1440)
You might want to run down the suggestions there first and see if it hits on something

Maybe a logic board problem

I'm just puzzled do you think it's intermittent because the logic board is going out or i was even thinking it was the cable coming loose. Because the way it's designed when i took it apart the part plugged into the motherboard didn't seem to secure. Is this something that can happen? If so do you have suggestions on holding it on better.
