Grey screen of DEAAAAAAAAAATH
Hopefully someone can help me with this issue. This has been a recurring issue for whatever reason. The computer sometimes will only get to the grey screen with apple logo and time clock spinning. If I boot into safe mode the system works..although sluggishly...it does take a very long time to boot that way too. I created a new admin account to see if that would boot normally but it won't so I will assume that it isn't a damaged account. I ran disk first aid and it says that the HD is smart verified..so again I will assume that the HD is OK. It happened once when the lid was closed and put to sleep...never woke up..but that too isn't the consistent variable.
Since it will boot in safe mode but even a new account doesn't bring it back then there has to be somthing outside my account that is [email protected]@%Ked....or can the HD be failing even if it still says smart verified
Any help would be greatly appreciated
