Do you have to hold down the power button for a while before it turns off? If so, it may be that Windows has actually loaded, but you just can't see it.
If this is the case, then it's likely to be your video card, your monitor, or the cables between them.
Try hooking up an external monitor - if it still doesn't work, then it's likely to be the video card (not usually fixable in a laptop)
On some laptops you've got to press the Fn key along with one of the Function keys to shift the display to the external monitor.
The good news is that the data is likely still there on the hard drive - so it should be recoverable.
