I have a MacBook pro. I dropped it while it was on. The machine continued to function. Now I restarted the machine, it goes to a grey screen with a flashing folder with a questionmark on it - just sits there flashing.
Seems like I damaged it. What steps should I take to see what's going on? Ideally I'd like to just get some data off the drive. Others have recommended:
1) insert mac os 10 cd on boot up - might be able to run disk-fix utility from the cd (granted problem is hard drive)
2) hook up my mb to another mac via FireWire - somehow I can see files from my mb on other machine?
Any info would be great,
