SOURCE: My Laptop does not turn on.
That orange light is usually an indication that the battery is not working properly. If you turn the computer on and take the battery out and put it back in it the yellow light might turn off. There is another indication that you have something in the power settings that might need to be set properly. Check in the control panel>power settings and see if the battery and power settings are okay. Also, sometimes the mute on the volume might be on. Lastly, I had a laptop that never turned on and when the hardrive was taken out and the power was turned on it still did nothing until it was turned off and the harddrive was put back in then turned on again.

SOURCE: Acer Aspire not booting
I'm inclined to believe something is going on with the DVD drive, perhaps a I/O cable or driver issue, it just seems like what you said about the drive sounding like it's trying to read is a clue, what I would try if you have not already ,is since you said you can get to get to the Bios usually the default for boot sequence is CD/DVD drive first unless you change it, see if you can change the boot sequence from DVD drive first to HDD first and see if you can bypass it, then it might just boot, if that works then that was the cause,I see no other reason why the Drive should be trying to read other than the boot sequence. if not then it might be more complicated and could be a hardware issue somewhere,
Hoep this helps.

It's a hardware failure like a cpu fan not working or faulty ram.Check the gateway site for an explanation of the lights. It's flashing a trouble code.
