    Hi guys i have a macbook pro, which suddenly stopped working. (owned for 3 months). i brought it to a mac repair place, and got my hdd replaced and now when i turn on my computer the ? icon comes out. and yes i have tried to install with mac osx disc but it stucks at some resources it couldnt find, ive tried all things and other installation discs, but then it just stucks at the apple logo.

    the question mark just means it cant find the os.
    boot form your install disc and go to utilities and select startup volume summin, that might resolve your issue.

    If you don't have your installation disk anymore try calling Apple, you probably will have to pay for it, but you might be able to get a new one free with AppleCare. Or if you have a friend with the same model of computer as you you could borrow their disk and use that to reinstall the OS. You can't use a retail disk because it probably wont have the drivers for your model on it.
