When a Mac laptop starts up and present a grey screen with a folder which has a question mark on it, what does it mean?

  • There is a problem with onboard RAM
  • The hard drive is full
  • Siri is active and waiting for a question
  • The computer cannot locate the OS files 


EXPLANATION

 A gray screen, as strange as that may sound. The “gray screen” problem can also manifest itself as a black screen; actually, a screen so dark you may mistake the display as being powered off. This is especially true of Macs with built-in Retina displays, such as the Retina iMac models that don't have a power on indicator.
This startup issue is called the gray screen problem because historically, the display would turn gray during the start-up phase when the problem struck. The more recent Retina Mac models have a black or very dark display instead 
Peripheral Issues

RAM issues or Drive Issues
