    A friend of mine turned her Mac on and all
    she got was a small square in the middle
    of the screen with a question mark in it.

    I dont have a Mac so can someone enlighten me.
    She is a new computer owner.

    It sounds like the mac can't find the boot device.
    If its new, take it back to the shop.
