The hard drive is probably fizzed. Buy a new one and install it. Does it turn on and POST ?

Michel armstrong, I suspect grasshopper nailed it, but just to make sure the machine itself isn't on the fritz, alter your bios settings to take input from the CD drive and see if it''ll go from there with a bootable disc. If so, change bios back and get a new HD.
