Well, I was just looking around the net and everything just froze and I had to do a hard restart and everytime I've tried to restart it, it only goes to grey apple screen. I put in the disk utility and I'm reparing the permissions now. If this doesn't work, is there anyway I could save my files in case I've gotta do a restore? And of course this happens at Enlish paper time so I need a good bit of stuff off of it. Luckily, not my paper, just sources.Thanks for the help guys. It's very very very very appreciated.
