hi, i have a macbook (running at 2.16 gHz with 1 GB of RAM, a 120 gb HD..) i was downloading attachments from an email last night, and i changed the download location because i was working on a project, i wanted the resources to be in the right folder..so i open the folder, and all of the images are open in preview. i drag one of them to the trash (while all of the images are still open) and it doesnt move. my mouse still moves around but then i start to get the rainbow spinning wheel. no big deal at that point...i wait a bit and it seems other applications are responsive, but the finder isnt. suddenly the wheel is gone and the folder randomly closes, i open it again and wait a few seconds and it closes again, i do this again and get the same result. i download another attachment from my email and it makes the folder close and i get a spinning rainbow again. so i try to shut the computer down on the power button, but it doesnt do anything, im getting a little annoyed so i just pull the power cord out (my battery is dead, so it shuts the computer down) then i try to boot it up..i get a grey screen at first.. and wait and it stays grey. i try many times to bootup but i get a grey screen. so eventually i just shut it back down, and go to bed. the next morning (which would be about an hour ago) i tried to boot it up, and waited a bit longer, this time i got a flashing folder icon with a question mark inside..i have applejack and a few other programs..but applejack is not installed, if it was i know what to press to bring the menu up. i have held down the power and shift buttons, and made it do that beep thing where the sleep light flashes.. but it didnt do anything. i dont have a startup disk, tiger came pr-insalled when i got the macbook.. i have not tried booting with extensions off, and i have not reset the VRAM (i know the keyboard shortcuts, but im not sure if i should do that yet) please help me out.. does this mean my computer is doomed? i had alot of important stuff on my drive, if its fried that would be bad. havent backed anything up.. note: at first the caps lock key, and the optical drive eject button are unresponsive, but when the folder w/ question mark appears, they are.. just thought i should throw that in..
