First - DON'T PANIC

On your last sucessful bootup was any problems detected ?.

Did you get any sounds (beeps)?.

Have you tried with the power plugged in?.

Try removing the power block and battery. Press and hold the power button on the laptop for a minute. Reconnect the transformer and try to boot up without the battery. Other post.
