MacBook Pro ... 2.5ghz/4 gig ram/snow lep ...

Starting maybe 3 weeks ago ... as I was working, my machines just, for the lack of a better word, froze. But it was truely frozen. I could click on stuff with my mouse, but couldn't close anything, save anything, force quit anything, my keyboard wouldn't work, all I could do was literally see my mouse moving, and the show I was watching on hulu desktop client was still playing. Here's where it gets interesting ... since I have not other options, I hard power it down ... wait a minute or so, fire it back up. I get the schwong ... grey screen ... no apple. I power it down again, same thing. The machine won't boot any way shape or form after this happens. I can't firewire to it, can't boot from cd, etc.

I have a 2.5 year old macbook pro that my wife uses. I pull the drives out of both machines, swap them ... both machines boot up perfectly fine, like nothing has ever happened. So I swap drives back to their appropriate machines ... both work like a charm. ***???? I'm stumped on this one. Any ideers?
