Won't power on, get gray screen with spinning wheel
My PowerBook does not start-up. I get a chime, then a gray screen with Apple logo and a spinning wheel. I have reset the PRAm and PMU, checked the RAM, in Target mode Disk Utility says the drive is good and I've repaired it. Also in Target mode I cannot install a new OS. When booting from the Leopard DVD I get a light gray screen, then a blue screen, then a dark gray screen. Have also tried to start up in Safe Boot mode-no good there either. Does anyone have any other ideas?
Thanks for the reply. In my original post I mentioned trying all of your suggestions in regards to booting in Target mode. I have another laptop and will try swapping drives.
Is this a good question?
