    Okay so I have had a iMac 24" for almost 3 years, and now it decides to grey screen. I visited the site (, and got nowhere, unfortunately. So I am assuming that my iMac is done, and I will have to have something major changed, like the hard drive.

    If I have had Time Machine running with regular backups (Seagate Free Agent for Mac), can I just reinstall where I left off, or are my files gone for good?

    Thank you in advance,

    Time Machine runs every hour, so as of the last time that it ran, you'll have all of your important files.
