Having problems with your Sony PC Laptops ?

I have a sony VGN-SZ583N and sudenly don't boot any more. When I press the power botton, the green light is on, the hard disk light blinks and then off, and I hear the cooling fan works, but the screen is black. It is the motherboard problem?. I've been seen in some sites the same problems with old models, regarding the RAM sockets. But it seems it is not my problem. thanks in advance Leo (from italy)
