It sounds like your operating system has failed. Your best bet would be to use a working computer to burn a new install disc / backup disc / repair disc and then reinstall your operating system, or if possible repair it.
Have you tried plugging the VGA output into an external monitor and turning it on? Maybe your screen has just failed, if it does output to an external monitor.
You can get it into external mode if you boot it up with an external monitor connected, a USB mouse connected, and a USB keyboard. Boot up the machine (plugged in!) and close the lid right away, and it should automatically kick over. If not, try windows key and P at the same time, once the machine is "running"
Download Ubunto onto a disc (as an image) and then you will need to boot to the disc in order to begin the installation process. With HP computers (including Compaqs), right after the computer is turned on, press F12 to bring up the units boot menu. Select the optical drive and then start the installation.
Depends on what you mean by won't boot from DVD or Hard Drive, it sounds like your boot order is what you're looking for help for.
To do this you need to get into your computers BIOS (or "Setup") You can do this by rebooting the computer and the very very very first screen you see tells you how, usually by pressing DEL or F2 or F10.
Without knowing the specific computer you're looking for help on I can only point you in the right direction however keep in mind the BIOS is for advanced users only and you can damage your computer by randomly changing settings.
What you're looking for though is usually called the Boot Order or Boot Sequence You'll need to set whatever device you want to boot from higher on the list (usually with the up arrow or PgUp) If you don't see your device on the boot list then it may not be detected due to failure.
This board has 2 slots for the ATI Crossfire video cards. Since the computer is turning off right away, it would appear that your PSU (power supply unit) does not have enough watts to power the motherboard and Crossfire video cards.
Check with ATI for the power requirements for your video cards and upgrade your PSU.
I typically see SLI / Crossfire systems with at least a 800 watt power supply. If you are below this, you will need to upgrade your power supply.
If you have a larger power supply, you will need to verify it is working correctly.
