hi. as title suggests that when i start my imac i get the grey screen with a flashing ? . i,ve got around this a couple of times by shutting down and restarting with the option key held down and choosing the hd. can anyone tell me how to stop this ? or is my hard drive knackered ? also what would the cause be ? one thing i noticed was just before it started the imac used to take ages to awake from sleep. any help would be great, thanks in advance and sorry for the long post !
