SOURCE: completely white/gray screen

First try this: shut it down, disconnect the power cord, pull out the battery, then hold the power button for a full 10 seconds. Reinstall the battery, reattach the power cord, turn it back on.
Still doing it? Put the reboot disk that your Mac came with, or the disk to the version of Mac OS X that you're running.
To start from disk hold "C" as your Mac is first turning on from a complete shutdown.

SOURCE: Turning on my macbook- all i see is white screen and 'no' sign

Apple has a troubleshooting document about this here: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1892
Normal procedure is to reset the NVRAM and PRAM then "remind" your Mac where to find the system folder. (This problem sometimes happens when the system folder is moved, renamed or deleted.)
It may be necessary to reinstall the operating system. (Fortunately, if you use the "archive and install" option, you can do this without erasing the hard drive or losing your user data.)

SOURCE: My Macbook shut down during reserve battery power

If that does not work, when you turn on the computer, hold the "Command" and "S" keys, this should boot to single user mode. When finished, it will dump you to a command prompt. From there type "/sbin/fsck -fy" (no quotes) and press enter. That wil run the BSD Filesystem Check. Once that is complete, type "reboot" and hit enter.

If there was an error with the file system that was keeping you from booting, that will solve it.

SOURCE: Macbook Pro goes from gray apple screen to black

Try booting into single user mode by pressing Command+S while booting. You should then be at a prompt. Type in:
fsck -f
and press Return. Let it run and see if it corrects any filesystem issues, then reboot when it's done.

SOURCE: at start up, the screen freezes, white with a gray apple insignia, and a timer that never stops

Hello I agree with benwabnick, I would also try to repair disk permissions and volume using the disk utility tool that is on the install DVD (hold the C key to boot from DVD, then choose english language, go to utilities, and choose disk utility).

Macbook stuck on load up screen


When you say "load up screen", I assume you mean the Apple boot screen (it has the apple on a gray background).

You might try resetting the PRAM on the macbook.
You can do this by pressing and holding the Command-Option-P-R keys. You must press this key combination before the gray screen appears.

So, turn the macbook completely off. Turn it on and immediately press and hold the Command-Option-P-R keys until the computer reboots and chimes. Once it chimes, release the keys. Your system should boot normally.

On my macbook air, the volume isn't working


Check the headphone jack on the side of your laptop. If you can see a red light inside the jack, then the sensor that determines when headphones are plugged in is dirty or jammed. Compressed air and/or removing and inserting a headphone cable repeatedly can sometimes fix it for a while.

Apple macbook air won't turn on


Does the Apple logo or the Pinwheel show on the screen?

There is a problem with you OSX installation. Please boot from the Recovery partition (hold Cmd+R during the startup chime), and use Startup Disk to choose the correct hard drive to boot from.
You can also restore from a backup, and not lose your data here as well.

Completely white/gray screen


your hard drive has most likely crashed.  this happened to my buddies macbook and it was $300 for a new hard drive, hopefully you still have a warranty on your mac, that way apple will cover the price.  take it in to apple and have them diagnose the problem.  my buddy was lucky bc apple covered the cost, if they refuse just be pushy and theyll eventually do it for you, im sorry
