My Apple iMac can't open. a blinking folder is displayed..

Can't find the OS. Is it brand new or have you used it before?
Have you swapped out or moved the hard drive?
I used it before.. Today when i start then it comes...
what can i do now
plz help me
try restarting and holding option then choose your hard drive.
now what can do
Are you near an Apple Store? If so make an appt. with a Mac Genius and bring it in. Either the hard disk has crashed or a loose connection. The blinking folder means that your iMac can't load the operating system (OS X).
You should boot on your OS X install CD, (put the cd in your mac, then hold C as you press the power button)
From here, first I'd do is go to disk utility and verify/repair your disk.
Doing this will likely tell you if your harddrive has crashed or is corrupt/something is wrong.
If your mac says nothing is wrong, then try "choose start up volume"
from here if your lucky there will be a start up volume named "OS X 10.*" choose that and click "restart"
if your lucky it'll work.
Truthfully i doubt that will work and you'll have to re-install OS X
