    I installed new hd installed os disk and restarted holding down the c key , the disk runs then kicks out, and I get blinking folder with question mark. Could this new hd be bad or is there some else you need to do when installing new hard drive.
    Thanks for your help

    the blinking folder means there is nothing to boot from on the hard drive ;)

    try installing an operating system from disc or run a back up if you have one
