Can you enter BIOS setup by tapping F10 key immediately after powering on? If so go to Diagnostics and test your hdd.

Remove the hdd and see if it will boot. Do you have Recovery Disks?

Did you try removing the hdd to see if it will boot. A bad hdd can cause a no- boot .

Thanks!! Taking out the hard drive and simply re-attaching it a little tighter worked for me...I guess it was a bit loose. Thanks!!!

You're quite welcome.Sometimes just reseating the hdd does the trick... Glad it worked for you.
