Our computer (a Macintosh) is having a
problem.  It won't locate the hard disk.  Says there's no hard disk to
pull up.  It will work if I put in that Start Up disk thing, but I can't
verify anything or even reinitialize.  
Any suggestions
Thanks

open it up, and make sure nothings been jostled loose.  if not, try slapping another HD in there and see if it's the hard disk that's went bad.  if it isn't the disk, try slapping your disk into another computer to see if the motherboard is the problem.  it's probably not the cmos battery.
