Startup problems. Screen freezes to grey.

On startup screen freezes on grey with centre circle with diagonal line. I have tried starting holding various keys as suggested on internet sites - control, option, P and R; C; etc. nothing seems to work. The computer has been quite hot lately. Prob a 2010/2011 model. The power transformer also getting quite hot. Perhaps time for replacement of the lot?

Thank you Dan. Didn't have friend with apple so finally went to Apple itself. Hard drive ok (phew) but other problems suggested a new computer was in order. So that was the decision. Was able to transfer data myself via hard drive external reader.
