    Well I am having my first ever problem with my MacBook Pro 17". I was looking on safari tonight and all of a sudden the computer just shut down. I thought my battery had gone dead so i plugged it in and now it is stuck on the grey login screen with the apple logo and the wheel. What can I do to fix this or will it have to go back to apple? The MBP is about three years old.

    hold "command v" when starting up and see what error it gives if it doesn't boot

    Try booting from the mac os install disk and run "repair permission" in the disk utility application.

    I had exactly the same problem in December and it turned out my hard disk was coming to an end of its life. When I tried to format and reinstalled Mac OS, at the end the installer gave me a message saying "the disk may be damaged" etc.

    Mine too is about 3 years old. Do you have a Seagate hard disk ? Same thing happened to my colleague as well.

    Reboot the computer can not solve the problem?

    OR you can replace the battery or adapter.
    hope that help you.
