Having problems with your HP Compaq Presario CQ50-103NR Notebook PC ?

Got power, frozen machine

\015 I can't seem to get this laptop to boot. It froze while I was watching a DVD. The fan was on full blast and that's when I got nervous. There isn't a reset button and it would not respond to ctrl, alt + del so I switched off the power. Now, the computer wont boot. It will read a DVD but the disk led will not come on to let me know if the cpu is reading my harddrive. I have taken out the battery and powered down. I removed the cmos batt and rebooted and nothing, the laptop will not reboot.\015

My HP media center pc m7680n would run only in safe mode so I ran diagnostics. Got a smart Short Self Test error code (HD521-2w). Replaced the hard drive and used the recovery disks I made. No go.
