If you have a grey screen on boot, have you followed this Apple note? When you get to the part where it says to insert a disk to boot and run Disk Utility, you want to boot into recovery mode by booting and holding the command and r keys down. It would be handy if you have a bootable backup to use if booting into OS X recovery doesn't work.

If you've been told by a reputable service provider that the logic board has failed, then the only thing you can do is to replace it. Otherwise take each of these steps that you haven't already tried. Stop when the problem is resolved.

Thanks for the provided information Linc, lamentably I had to arrive at step 9 without success.
It is a bad diagnosis for my computer. The second time that happens to me. I'm still thinking about repair a logic card or buy another mac. I can't be without computer.

I took my early 2011 macbook pro i7 into Apple. I was offered flat rate depot repair for $310 and jumped at it. It came back looking new in a week. They replaced the logic board, RAM, and the basel. WIthin two months it failed again. Apple sent it off for repair for no charge (90 day warranty on repairs). I received it back working again, with a third logic board. It failed within two days. I returned it to Apple. The store manager sent it off for repair again, offered to and refunded the amount I paid for repair. So I could use it to buy something to work with. He said said it would have a 90 day warranty after being repaired! He said it would go for a higher level of repair. This will be the third repair attempt.
So I bought a new 11" macbook air.
I'm thinking something is killing the logic boards. In this video, of a different unibody repair, a short was found.
