    Boot from the install disk and run Disk Utility. Verify the disk, then Repair it. If that doesn't work, just do a clean install or upgrade-install.

    What you describe could well be a hard disk crash, Stepan. So your data may already be lost/inaccessible...



    What you can try is putting your MacBook, switched off, in a ziplock bag (close well!) and sticking it in the refrigerator. NOT in the freezer! After minimum 2 hours you can take it out, connect the power cable, and a USB cable to a (functional) external harddisk, start up the MB and copy as much data as you can to the external HD.

    You will have to do that fast, because IF the MB still works it will only do so for a half hour or so (maximum). Until it warms up again (if you do this outside it will take longer to warm up, so it will work longer). So think well which data you need most, and copy those first!



    If the HD has indeed crashed you will need to replace it (or get a new Mac/MacBook). If you don't want to lose any more data in the future: GET TIME MACHINE! You already have the software on your installer disk. You only need an external HD. Which have never been cheaper than today (1TB ± €50).



    Good luck!



    And let us know how it goes.
