Startup problem: grey screen

Tekst:

One morning I tried to startup my Powerbook G4:

I had used "startup sound control", but this time i heard the startup sound and knew this was a bad sign.

When I plug in the power adapter, the light is green at first an then goes orange.

As I tried to start, I heard the sound of ejecting the CD (as usual)

Then the startup sound, and then the screen goes grey...

then nothing more happened...

(by the way, the fan is working...)

I tried to:

- reset pram

- reset vram

- start from startup disc (apple came on the sreen, then the turning wheel, but then the wheel froze and nothing happened anymore..., the same with the hardware check...)

- startup in firewire target mode, single user mode...

- startup in open firmware, worked, but I didn't know what to do there...  = )

Thanks for your help!!!
