acer 2920 laptop not booting

Specs: vista and xp dualboot, 2gb ram
My acer 2920 is not booting,neither into bios nor windows. Problem started when I inserted a soundcard into the expresscard slot while the laptop was booting.Prior to that everything was working fine. It froze when I inserted the soundcard and when I turn the power off and rebooted, the screen remains black, the fan spins for a couple of seconds then stops and no further activity...I've tried a boot disk in the cd drive, ubuntu, recovery disk... Nothing works. The screen remains black and there's no hard disk activity. I'd be grateful for some help.Thanks.

If you cannot boot from any CD and the hard drive isn't spinning up, you must have caused some internal damage which is difficult to provide help with on a forum. You'll need to let a repair centre take a look at it. It's possible the motherboard is damaged.

Thanks Phil22 I've taken it to a repair centre and I should get a report tomorrow after they've done a health check.
