Hi everyone. Unfortunately this is my first post on here and I have to be a negative nancy. I got my macbook a couple of months ago and installed Leopard as soon as I got it. I have not had any problems with it until tonight. I was using ITunes, ICal and Word when all of a sudden the computer froze. I turned off the computer and turned it back on and it made the chime and than froze at the grey screen, not spinny icon or apple symbol at all. I let it sit for a while and nothing happened. At that point I began frantically searching the web for advice. I had a friend who this happened to not to long ago and he lost all of his files. I tried resetting my PRAM but it has had no affect. I have found lots of posts that have been helpful but it doesn't seem like any of them have experienced my specific problem. At one point, I don't know how, I was able to make it to the Leopard Installation disk menu. It said that I could not reinstall leopard because I do not have mac os 10.4 on my computer. I read somewhere that someone said my only option is to erase Leopard and reinstall it which would unfortunately cause me to lose all of my data. I read somewhere else that I could hook up the firewire between my computer and another one and transfer my data before erasing the operating system. However, at this point I am holding down the T button on boot up but it is still remaining at the grey screen. Can anyone help me?
