    Hi
    I started my Mac up. And the apple logo showed the cut straight to a circle with a cross in it.
    I am grateful for any suggestions

    Looks like:
    - problem with the internal drive
    - problem with the system software -on- the drive

    You need to tell us more before we can tell you more.

    What Mac?
    What year was it made?
    What OS was it running before this happened?
    Do you have a backup?

    Boot in single user mode or verbose mode. Google it.

    Can you boot into recovery mode by booting while holding down Command-R? If you can use Disk Utility and see if it will repair your drive.

    Yeah looks like your hard drive has died, without a back up you could have lost everything. As others say try to repair the disk and then do an immediate back up. Then it'll need a new hard drive to be honest.
