What version of OS X are you running? –  CajunLuke Mar 3 '11 at 17:43

  • Hold down the Option key - does it enter the boot disk chooser screen?
  • Put the OS install CD in the drive, and boot holding down the C key. Does that work? If so, use Disk Utility to run a scan on the drive.
  • Can you plug in an external monitor? What happens when you do?

It's Bricked

I don't remember a blue screen, but I had one that did the grey screen and wouldn't enter the loader. Could be a a variety of hardware issues or even software issues. Take it to an Apple store for the best diagnosis.

@Sevki: Have you tried the boot loader? Hold down option. –  Josh K Dec 28 '10 at 19:11
