    i looked around in the forum, but i haven't seen a solution.

    at start-up my computer would not past the white screen with the grey apple.
    if i start the computer with the 'alt' key down i see my hard drive with an 'x' on it.

    how can this be solved?

    That really doesn't tell us much.

    Do a start up in verbose mode by pressing Command(apple) + v.
    This will allow you to see where it is hanging and once you have that information post it up here.

    As of now it kinda sounds like a bad hard drive or hard partition is corrupted.
