    You could try resetting your PRAM by holding down command+option+P+R on startup.

    If you bought it less than 30 days ago, you are definitely covered by Apple Care, give them a call. If its more than 30 days ago, call them anyway because you are still within the 1 year warranty (if I can assume you have the alum macbook from your sig).... and see if they'll talk to you anyway.

    Good Luck.
