The question mark means that the machine can't find a system. If you have a bootable DVD, insert it and let the computer boot from the disk, Once booted see if your har drive has died. If it has, you can install a new one if you want to keep using that machine. If the drive hasn't died, then see if you can reinstall the system, which may have gotten corrupted over all that time without booting the computer.
