    I have a Macbook Pro Model Number MB470*/A and I left it on the other night and the battery died of course. But when I went to turn it back on in the morning it would not come on and I got the flashing folder icon with the question mark. I tried to use the Snow Leopard disk to see what may be happening, but the hard drive never showed up in the disk utilities. However a USB drive did show up in disk utility. I made sure the drive was connected and it is. I tried to remove it but stripped the screw. Now I can't take it out. Does anyone have any ideas that may be able to help me out? Thank you so much, any help is appreciated.

    Are you talking about your internal hard drive? You are trying to remove your internal hard drive?

    Yes I am talking about the internal hard drive. It's no where to be found. I even booted the computer with a copy of ubuntu but I could not locate the internal hard drive.
