TS2570: Mac OS X: Gray screen appears during startup

Learn about Mac OS X: Gray screen appears during startup

TS2570 Hi, I have an old mac powerbook that only shows a spinning wheel on start up. I've tried the options to re boot it but still nothing. Can access the contents of the power book by trying to open it from my new mac powerbook ? If so how would I go it.

Hi, I have an old mac powerbook that only shows a spinning wheel on start up. I've tried the options to re boot it but still nothing. Can I access the contents of the power book by trying to open it from my new mac powerbook ? If so how would I go about it ? Alternatively, is there a way to back the hard disk to an alternative external hard drive ?

 

Many thanks
