    Ok before I call the Priest with Holy Water ;) My daughter (14) brings me her Macbook 2.0Mhz 13.2 Screen 120 GB HD in tears last night. It is using OP Tiger 10.4 and is 96 days out of warranty of course right?

    She turned it on and got nothing but a grey screen and a blinking file with a question mark. I did some research on Google so went out and replaced the Hard Drive this afternoon still nothing.

    I inserted the OS Disc #1 and it wont boot from the disc either. I turned on the Mac and held the "C" button and still nothing. I can hear the CD spinning it it will not boot on the original HD or the new one. I took the new one back just a bit ago.

    I made an apointment to take it to Apple on Saturday. Please does anyone have any clue what Im in for or how I can fix it?

    Thanks

    Try using an external USB keyboard to hold C. I might be way off, but I swear it worked for my repaired Macbook (before my unrelated screen issues came up)
