Boot stuck on grey screen

    Hi Forum,

    Since this morning my MBP (specs in sig) will only display a grey screen when I try to boot it, and nothing else: no Apple logo, no spinning beach ball. I can't do anything. I've tried resetting PRAM and SMC, hold cmd+r, hold command+c, boot safe mode, hold option, and tried booting of a recovery USB I made.
    I've even tried swapping the RAM I've upgraded back the the apple branded 4GB. Nothing works.

    Is it time to take it to my local Apple store, or is there something I can do?

    Thank you.

    Sounds like something either really messed up the settings (rouge program or stupid users mistake) or a hardware failure. Maybe the hard drive went south without you.

    Have you done anything weird on your computer lately that may have caused any trouble?

    That would be wise if you can't get this resolved soon

    Nope, it was business as usual. I'll get it repaired then thanks.
