    My Macbook doesn't start. It just goes to the gray screen and flashes between the Apple symbol and an "anti" sign, like you'd put over a cigarette in a no-smoking sign.

    Any ideas?

    Yikes. I did that, and now it doesn't start at all. No screen, no fan, no light, nothing.

    There's also a DVD inside the Mac that I can't retrieve so I try the startup disc.

    Yikes *pulls collar and begins to sweat*
    Try unplugging and taking out the battery for a 10-20s.

    Otherwise, Genius bar :)
