ACER Travelmate 5520G won't boot

Hi all,

I have an ACER Travelmate 5520G that won't boot. When I press the power button power indicator turns green and the hard drive activity indicator blinks for a few seconds, but then nothing else happens. I can hear the fan running, but that is it.

What do you think is wrong?

Thank you Happy
