Turn on the headlights try to start if the lights go off or go very dull the battery most likely is flat

If the lights stay bright, make sure the transmission is in neutral and the park brake is on.
Hold the key in the start position and let someone tab the starter motor with a hammer, often the tarter engaged, The problem in this case point to worn brushes.

Good luck

2000 v40 Starting Problem

Sounds like the transmission interlock switch for the starting circuit is malfunctioning. It keeps the car from starting in gearshift position but park.
The interlock switch can be temporarily jumped out of the circuit to test if this alleviates the starting issue.
If it does, get repaired immediately since this is a safety feature.
