Having problems with your HP Compaq Presario CQ50-110US Laptop ?

When attempting to start, laptop will not boot. I have tried all the different combinations for accessing the BIOS, but nothing happens. The hard drive light does not blink. I even tried a brand new hard drive, hoping that SOMEthing would come up at least, but nothing happened. The fan starts, the wireless light comes on, the power lights are on and stay lit, but the hard drive never turns on. Is the laptop just dead? Help!

I have a Dell Inspiron 5150 that doesn't seem to post. When I turn it on, the power light comes on, the battery light comes on, I hear the heat sink fan run, but I don't get the Dell splash screen.
