View Full Version : Is my ibook sick?

10th December 2005, 01:03 AM
On a restart, or boot from cold, I get a folder icon with a question mark just prior to the grey apple logo. Only a momentary thing, but I'm concerned it may be a precurser to a terminal failure.

Is this a significant event?

ibook 12" with tiger, regularly updated and treated like a newborn.

But it has done about 30,000+ kms on a motorbike! (well wrapped in an STM bag, inside a padded backpack, on top of the wet weather gear in a gearsack)

i freaked out about this just a few weeks ago! The problem is your start up disk is not set to the os, and the ibook spends that second or two searching for the start up. Don't ask me how this happened, just go into system preferences and select your os..

Disko told me, so it must be true.
