    Hey guys, today when i was using my computer i got a grey screen filling my screen up saying that i need to push the power button to restart my computer.

    When i restarted it i read some stuff online saying that this is caused by malfunctioning hardware, well i performed a hardware check. The extended one, and it came up fine.

    Whats wrong with my computer? It's a iMac i5 3.1 Ghz with 4Gb of ram, little over a month old.

    Should i be worried? :(

    Thanks. :apple:

    yeah, if it continues to happen then you may have something faulty, usually the ram is going. But sometimes it happens once in the blue moon. I had the grey screen on my mid 2010 iMac once since i bought it 1.5 years ago.
