    A friend owns a Mac and when she turned
    it on all she got on the monitor was a small
    square in the middle with a question mark in it.

    I dont have a Mac so can anyone shed a light on
    what happened and how to get a proper response
    to a boot.

    that usually means there's no start up folder. like the hard drive is bad,
    or you need an OS on it. try booting from cd and see if it sees a hard
    drive.
