    I have a mid 2010 Macbook pro 13".

    The computer froze on me for some reason while on the screen saver. I reset the computer and it worked fine.. Maybe slightly slower than I am used to, but I might be wrong. The computer was also very hot on the bottom left side. At that point I decided to boot into diagnosis to check the systems. I booted while holding the D key, and it took me to a gray screen and from there, nowhere...
    Tried the C key, and it did the same...

    Once in OS x lion, I went to about this mac, then more info, then system report. Under Diagnostics, it shows passed...

    I am really in loss to understand what is going on here...

    Anyone has any insights?

    The comment about it being slower implies your hard drive might be failing. If you have any important data, I'd highly recommend you back it up ASAP.
