    I have an early 2011 MacBook Pro 13.3", i7 processor and OS 10.8.4

    The problem started yesterday when I was browsing the Internet with 2 chrome windows and about 10 open tabs within it. All of a sudden my Mac keeps beach balling like there's no tomorrow. I assumed the problem may be with chrome because it was using a lot of RAM so I closed chrome, but the problem still didn't go away. I then closed all apps open and it only became worse. It got to the point where my Mac was unusable. I decided to do a time machine backup and let it run overnight, but it seemed to have got stuck at 19.13GB out of 22GB. I switched off my computer and decided to do a NVRAM/PRAM reset (http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1379?viewlocale=en_US). When I did that, I got an apple logo with a progress bar underneath it but the computer just switched off by itself. And now (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QETGA0lGLps) is happening. I have already booked an appointment with a genius on Tesdsy but wondering if I could do anything right now.

    do a hardware test and check whats happening.
    press and hold 'D' as soon as you press the power button. Or if you have the discs that shipped with your system them inser the disc with hardware test written on it
