Asus G72gx wont boot

My Asus g72gx turns on but will not do anything. The fan kicks on and the power button lights up but the other 4 buttons next to them dont. The only thing that happens when I press the power button is the fan and the light, the screen stays absolutely black. I have tried using an external monitor but it did the same thing. Does anyone know what might be wrong? Thanks

That's often a symptom of a failed hard drive, meaning the PC can't find an operating system to load. Do you not see any messages from the BIOS? Do you see a flicker from the hard drive activity light?
