Unless your machine took a bad fall down some stairs, I am guessing you have a problem with hardware. Unplug the machine and remove the battery. Unplug any external devices like cards, USB devices and printers, etc., and then reboot. Is the hard drive running? Try F10 into setup, and then select LOAD SAFE DEFAULTS AND REBOOT, or something similar. If this does not get it going, check to see if the harddrive or memory has become unseated in their bays somehow. Turn the laptop over, remove the screws covering the little doors, lovingly and gently unscrew the harddrive retaining screw and remove it, and then put it back in and secure the screws. Check to make sure the memory modules are seated correctly, and reseat them if necessary. Then try rebooting. If you get the same problem, go into the BIOS again and check to make sure you are booting to the HDD as first, and then start turning off devices in the BIOS and rebooting in cycles until it boots. Also, try booting to CD (for example, OS installation disk) and if that works, you likely have a boot problem or hardware problem on the hard drive.
