Compaq Presario x1000-does not boot..Doesn't even reach POST

I have a Compaq Presario x1000 notebook. last week after using it, I shut
down as usual. But when i powered it on some time simply refuses to
boot. The hard disk whirring sound comes to a stop within 2 seconds of
powering on. All the LEDs are on. The screen remains blank with no sign of
any activity. The fact is that the system halts before getting to the POST.
I connected it to an external monitor but there's still no display. meaning
that the LCD id ok. I have tried removing the battery ... and doing a power
drain, but it doesn't help.
