Hmm, I see that gray screen briefly at startup on this Mac, Light gray with an Apple in the middle and a small gear under the apple.

Yesterday I had normal sounds at startup, but nothing operated, no kb control. mouse function. I googled grey screen and gear and saw lots of posts on it.
This is a Leopard era Mini.

after I got it running, and was loading the OS I saw that grey screen briefly during one or 2 stages in the process, but it never hung on the gear screen like it did yesterday.

thanks for the thoughts, since I'd like to sell it I want to keep checking it. It has worked fine since I opened it, and then and loaded the OS onto the stock blank 120gn drive I reinstalled.
