I came home today to the kids and wife in a panic. Our Intel Mac-Mini would not start and kept flashing a folder with question mark. No big deal....do some google search and read. Found plenty of articles suggesting some easy solutions using keyboard shortcuts. I have spent the last 2 hours reading articles, trying shortcuts to no avail. I have my install disc in the slot drive, cannot get it to boot from it, cannot get it out either. I thought I was nuts, so I even used two other keyboards (thinking it was the new flat apple keyboard) to try all the startup commands. I did notice that none of the lights on any of the keyboards seem to come on or respond. This makes me think that the USB ports are not working, or have died. Has anyone dealt with this before? Any feedback? Thanks for your input.
