MacBookPRO5,4 Grey screen shutting down.

PC convert. I have had this Laptop for 18 months.
About 6 months ago, I tried to shut it down and a grey screen descended. It stated in about five different languages that I need to hold down the on button to reset my computer.
I hate it because you hear that hard drive tick and think............
Can anyone explain this one:
Tonight, I was running google chrome and writing on Garageband. Suddenly the screen went blank.
(Completely gutting for me as I had written a blinding tune).
When I touched the brightness increase button, the screen flickered on and off, to the point that I could save my efforts. When I took my finger off the brightness button the screen went blank again.
What is going on?
