Hey people. I have to admit that I am a bit of a noob at Macs. I've been researching a lot, and I can't find the answer to my exact problem. And I don't have warranty, plus I didn't buy it in an Apple store. Here's the deal - I bought a Macbook Pro, late 2008 model, a month ago (my very first Mac), and I got it without the install disks. The only thing I got was the computer and charger. One day I turned it on and the flashing question mark came up and google quickly told me that it's because it can't find/something's wrong with the software. I've tried various methods to get it to work without the install disk, but none have solved anything. I am quite sure that I accidently downloaded a virus, can this totally fry my hard drive so I need to get a new one? Or should I invest in the install disks and try that first? - And where can I get them? I don't have much info on this Mac, so I don't think I'd be able to contact Apple and get them to send me new ones. If I replace the hard drive, I assume they come empty. How do I install the software on the new hard drive - how and where can I get it? I don't have a back-up. And one other thing - the internal mic doesn't work. I've tried all the settings on the computer, tried with external mics. Nothing works. What can be the problem here? Will I need to get it fixed by a professional? I hope that some generous soul out there will help me.
