It sounds to me like the reason your computer has crashed is because your hard drive has failed, or possibly that your boot sector is corrupted.
Try holding down the F8 key when you turn it on. A recovery screen should appear. A full factory reset will result in lost data. Just follow the instructions. If the screen doesn't appear, your hard drive is suspect.
