    gray apple screen then turns off....
    i am thinking it's a hdd can boot off an external hdd but not on it's on. gets to the gray apple screen, tries to load, then just turns off.

    i am trying to use disk warrior on it but it seems to be stuck at the blue screen. when i turn on the ibook, i hold down "c" until it gets to the blue screen and i let go. i see nothing but the blue screen and the cd rom drive isn't spinning anymore.

    It does sound like hard disk failure. Is your external hdd in a caddy, or is it a sealed unit? I'm wondering if it's worth swapping the two around to see if it's an internal controller failure or the disk itself?
