I have a PB G4 - recently upgraded to Leopard. Worked fine for about a week. Went to boot up screen sticks @ grey screen. Wheel is still spinning but no progress. I don't think it is Leopard but more a hardware problem. I am after a boot up key stroke or similar to get past the grey screen. Can anyone give me an idea. Tks.
