Last week my battery abruptly died (condition replace now), which is a seperate problem, but I read the problem might be software related.  One recommendation was to reset the SMC.  Which I did.  Not only did it not fix the battery issue, but now it continues to reset every time I startup my laptop. 


To be specific, before I reset SMC, I would hit the power button, hear the power sound and the screen would flash grey almost immediatley.  Now when I hit the power button, the sleep icon flashes white four or five times, then the power sound and the grey sceen.  Anyone else experience this or have a fix?  Thanks!
