My Macbook won't boot and, instead, displays a grey screen with a folder with a question mark. 
From other discussions, it seems that the solution for this is to try to boot from the CD-ROM.  However, this computer was recently upgraded to Lion OSX from the App Store.....so no CD-ROMs are available.
How can I resolve this issue?
Thanks in advance,
