    So I already put a CD in when my Mac froze and I restarted it.

    I tried to turn it on and I just get a blank screen while it makes a very loud noise.

    Turned it off then on, then a blinking folder with question mark.

    All advice says to run off the CD but I can't put a CD in since my CD won't eject. :( :( :(

    I also pressed shift, nothing.

    My hard drive crashed earlier this year and they replaced it, what do I do?? :(

    Ok, so I took my CD out by pressing down the trackpad button, installed disk cd, but nothing. Just a blank screen and a lot of noise. :(

    I finally got it.

    It says: Mac OS X cannot be installed on this computer.
    Ok Restart

    Do I choose restart or ok? :|

    Okay sorry, I've gotten to utlility disk.

    Online it says to go to first aid and verify/repair disk. However these options are not available for me to click...?

    Everything I've gone to is the same as here ^ only the button to repair disk isn't highlighted..
