    Hello,

    My MBP 2009 mid model started behaving odd. On Wednesday duing boot up it failed. Then i booted from DVD, it took a while and when in I run diskuntil and it sees no hdd . I thought hdd failed so I put original hdd I had with snow leopard and for 3 days everything worked. Later today duing boot, ip I see grey screen of death with spinning icon. Attempt to book from DVD took a long time before I saw the welcome screen. I can not progress further beyond language selection - 'Use English for the main language'

    Logic boards usually don't just "die." Maybe try removing a stick of RAM to see if that helps.
