    Hi guys,

    I have encountered the Gray Screen of Death on my Macbook Pro. It stalls in the gray loading screen.

    I have already performed the following tasks:

    - reset PRAM/NVRAM
    - repair permissions (from the Leopard installation disk)
    - repair disk (from the Leopard installation disk)
    - disconnect all peripherals

    Still no go.

    Booting using the verbose mode shows the following errors:

    The first line is repeated for a number of times and seems to be going forever. is my home server, which is fine by the way (I can access it from my Windows desktop).

    I can't recall doing anything extreme since my last reboot. The Macbook Pro is my primary workstation, and is rarely shutdown/rebooted, I always put it to sleep. Today when I woke it up, my bluetooth mouse wouldn't connect, so I rebooted the laptop... GSOD is all I get from this point. :(

    Any suggestions to more troubleshooting? I really don't want to make a fresh install (or even archive and install)...

    Thanks in advance!

    i suggest you start to backup your files. it could happen again and a lot more worse.
