What does the symbol mean. It powers up blue and chimes, makes a series of clicks, then goes black for a second and then comes up with that symbol.

That means there's a problem with the hard disk. Have a look at this article.

What is could mean is that your computer is attempting to connect to a Network Drive for startup (if there isn't one, that's why it is doing that). Simply go too System Preferences>Startup Disk, and make sure that your OS is selected.

Otherwise, like said above, you've got a problem with your HDD
