Startup problem: grey screen
One morning I tried to startup my Powerbook G4:
I had used "startup sound control", but this time i heard the startup sound and knew this was a bad sign.
When I plug in the power adapter, the light is green at first an then goes orange.
As I tried to start, I heard the sound of ejecting the CD (as usual)
Then the startup sound, and then the screen goes grey...
then nothing more happened...
(by the way, the fan is working...)
I tried to:
- reset pram
- reset vram
- start from startup disc (apple came on the sreen, then the turning wheel, but then the wheel froze and nothing happened anymore..., the same with the hardware check...)
- startup in firewire target mode, single user mode...
- startup in open firmware, worked, but I didn't know what to do there... = )
Thanks for your help!!!
Is this a good question?
