    I have an ibook computer at startup a question mark folder pops up, but not always sometimes the operating system does startup. However, after anywhere from 10-30 minutes it freezes up and when i restart the question mark comes up again. I have switched out the hard drives put a new operating system on it and it's still doing the same thing i'm wondering if anyone can give me suggestions about what it could be.

    Maybe a logic board problem

    I'm just puzzled do you think it's intermittent because the logic board is going out or i was even thinking it was the cable coming loose. Because the way it's designed when i took it apart the part plugged into the motherboard didn't seem to secure. Is this something that can happen? If so do you have suggestions on holding it on better.
