    The grey screen with the apple? Does the little loading thing show up? How long have you waited?

    This happened to my friend, it got to the apple logo but the spinning thing did not appear. Hard drive failure was the veredict :(

    Do you have the OS install disk(s) ? If so try putting it in the Mac and holding C during startup...

    P.S: Please use more informative thread titles in future
