    Give this a try (SMC reset):

    Intel-based Macs: Resetting the System Management Controller (SMC)

    If this doesn't help...then give this a try (PRAM reset):

    Could be a dead hard drive then.

    Try booting the computer from an OS install DVD. If this works...then open "Disk Utility"...and have a look at the hard drive. Maybe it can be repaired...and maybe not.

    But if the computer can successfully boot from an OS DVD...then at least the computer is ok...and then just need to replace the HD.
