Try charging.
Try power cord without battery installed.
Try cleaning battery contacts with pencil eraser (clean off dust after).
Check online manual for key to press while booting to access safe mode and try that, If you get to safe mode, use system restore.
Try accessing your BIOS in a similar way (to see if there is a hardware problem - if monitor lights up and you get something, it eliminates a lot of possibilities)
Post back results for more suggestions and any recent problems you may have had (it may help). With so little to go on, it will be a trial and error to find the problem or at least more clues.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
