    Yesterday, our iMac G5 (built in isight) screwed up. The screen went grey, and said we needed to restart. So, we restarted it, and now all we get is a grey screen.

    Has anyone encountered this problem before?If so, how is it fixed.

    cheers,
    will

    Its time for you to crack out that old install disk and give it a spin....disk utility.

    Sounds like you had a stick of RAM go bad on you then. Most places will replace any faulty RAM for free as most RAM has a lifetime warranty on it. Bad RAM is one of the most common culprits of a kernel panic, which is what the gray screen telling you to restart is.

    Kudos to you for finding it! :D
