My MacBook just loads up with a gray screen.


Tried all keyboard shortcuts prior to the gray screen showing up but it just comes up.

One thing I did notice is the white light in the front of the MacBook stays on when the laptop is closed, and turns off when the MacBook is open.

I unplugged all peripherals , restarted, still nothing. It charges from my wall adapter and also charges my iPhone via USB. Can't change the brightness on screen via keyboard or the keyboard backlight. Help?

MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
