OK. That makes much more sense.
You're probably running up against a failed power supply.
You also may want to pull the power cord from the hard drive including the ide cable. Try once again restarting the computer and check for the BIOS boot screen.
Also, with the computer powered off, put your nose to the rear of the power supply, not directly against it, and smell it. You may smell a foul odor like something elecrtical has burned. If you smell that, then you know for sure it's a bad power supply.
Do you have another power supply you can try in your computer?
