It sounds like a hard disk has failed.
you will need a new one if this is the case and then reinstal the operating system. you can try take the hard disk out and put it in the freezer for a few hours then back in the laptop. if this makes it work save files want to a cd as this isnt a lond term fix

Wont turn on

Hello, It looks like a dead hard drive... To check your hard drive and see if you can repair it yourself, reboot your computer press simultaneously the "cmd" and "s" keys at startup if you see a black screen with white text, type: fsck -f and hit enter this does a "file system check", when finnished, type "reboot" and press enter. If nothing better happens, you'll certainly have to brinng it to an Apple Authorized Center Best regards
