OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Screen Goes Black Just As The Blue Background Appears?

Apr 26, 2012

I have an iMac 21inch, Late 2009.  I found after it was runing really slow that my hard drive was failing.  It told me there were SMART errors on the drive.  The computer is out of warranty and I'm in the middle of no where so i have no Mac store to take it to.  I bought a new drive, same model, and installed it into the computer.  It turns on fine, but after the Apple logo and spinning coge wheel the screen flashes, shows the blue back ground like its going to load the desktop and then goes black. 

I've tried connecting an external monitor to it and shows up like an extended display.  I've tried connecting it to another Mac, a Mini, and the Mini can boot off the iMacs hard drive just fine.  If it Target Disk mode the Mini and boot the iMac I get the same flash of blue desktop then it goes black.  

This is where it gets weird though, I'm sure your thinking, ok the screen is going bad...  BUT,  I boot off an Ubuntu CD, or the AHT disk and it loads fine and has no turning black.  Its only when booting into the Mac OS or the installation disk.   

One last note is that when its at the black screen and I'm sure its loaded the desktop, if I hold the power button down for about 3-4 seconds, till I hear a click.  I then press the button again right away and the screen flashes on showing me the desktop and everything, for about 2 seconds...

MacBook Pro :: System Freezes Randomnly For 30 Sec - Gray Screen At Boot Appears

Jan 30, 2010

Since a few days ago my Macbook Pro 13" from last June started to freeze randomly for atleast 30 seconds and then it would come back and most of the time freeze again after a while (in OSX only it seems, Windows 7 I did not have such problems, though I didn't use it often). Sometimes it occured frequently, other times it didn't and this morning I had the same thing again, I just held the power button and shut it down, did this two times in a short period of time and when trying to boot it for the second time all I get is a gray screen with no Apple logo or anything.

Searched the forums, tried the install DVD and C button to no avail, same thing with trying to reset the PRAM and NVRAM...Is the logic board broken or anything? I don't understand how this could happen...And if I do take my laptop to Apple, should I remove the Intel SSD drive I got in it right now and put in the stock?

PowerPC :: Powerbook Making Loud Noises / Gray Start Up Screen Appears

Dec 16, 2006

So, recently (as of thursday or so) my PBG4 has been making weird buzzing noises, usually only when it was working hard (or watching things online). Eventually, as it got closer to the weekend, the noise started to get louder whenever it would come on, so I'd just turn off my computer for an hour or so and let it cool. Finally, today, I turn it off again and now whenever I turn it back on, all I get is the gray start up screen, sans spinner. Sometimes I even get a little folder with the mac face on it. What's wrong?

Software :: Unable To Start System / Gray Screen Fades Into White And Apple Logo Never Appears

Mar 19, 2009

I have had my MacBook for almost two years and the battery had just died on me. So I sent it back to Apple and got a new one. But ever since switching over to this new battery, my computer has had issues starting up. A grey screen fades into white and the Apple logo never appears. The computer will just stay like that for hours. A friend suggested turning the power off and back on, holding apple+ctrl+P+R, which worked. However, the next time I turned my computer on, the screen stayed white again, without an Apple logo. Can you tell me what the deal is? Should I bother reporting this to Apple? Is this permanent damage I'm going to have to go thru everytime I start me laptop? Any way to fix it? Thanks.

OS X :: OS X 10.6 - Gray Screen Upon Startup

Oct 5, 2009

upon startup i see a gray screen, the apple logo, and spinning gears. Then the apple logo turns into a circle with a line through it and stays that way forever. I call apple support. They got me to run disk utility by booting from install disk. Then running repair disk and repair permissions. Then boot into safe mode and computer works fine...for a few restarts then does the same thing.
