    CMD is the Apple key in between the option key and spacebar right? I held cmd+s down when i turned it on but it just went back to the grey screen with the folder that has a question mark

    You almost certainly have a hardware problem of some sort. Have you added any RAM recently? Are any external devices connected to your Mac? If the answer to both of these questions is no, then your Mac should be serviced by Apple.
