Try a safe boot.
OS What is Safe Boot Safe Mode
If that doesn't work, try reseating your memory chips. Or take them out apart from one or replace them. The error sounds like a RAM issue.

Have you tried connecting an external monitor.
A boot chime means the Mac has passed POST, that the screen remains black initially suggests there is a problem getting image to screen which could mean a bad cable to the LCD or the LCD display its self is having problems.
By connecting to an external display you verify the graphics on the logic board is functional, and it could get you up and running till the display problem is fixed.
Also try powering up and when you hear the chime, hold down the COMMAND+OPTION+P+R keys, and keep holding them till the machine has chimed 3 times, this will reset the 'BIOS' in case there is a glitch there stopping the display from showing up.

since apple drives are formatted in HSF+, a file system that windows cannon read, the chances of it even being bossible to run anything on it from a PC is very very slim.

Tips for a great answer:
Check for a failing hard drive
Trying booting from the Mac OS X install disc.
insert the Mac OS X install disc.
press the start button, while holding down the "C" key on the keyboard
Once you are running from the disc. go to Disk Utilities select the hard drive click the "repair permissions" button at the bottom.
If you get any red errors listed or it doesn't seem to finish repairing the permissions you have a failing hard drive and it will need to be replaced.
