Guess would be the power supply. In most cases you can get your data back unless the hard drive failed. Unlikely.

May have to open the case and look in to get a better idea. Any lights on keyboard or any fans anywhere give clues.

In some situations some wires get caught in a fan but that should allow it to start up. There may be a situation where the cpu fan stopped and your cpu burned up.
