I reset the SMU, now it just continues to spin the fan VERY loudly but won't boot. I can't even get it to respond to a boot up disc/ option command, nor will it chime confirming it has accepted the sound of the PRAM resetting. The Hardware is all okay, this was confirmed already. So, any other tips on how to get this to boot? I'm at a loss now, as I feel I've tried everything.

Thanks so much

If you tried all these troubleshooting tips without getting anywhere, then it's time to give Apple a call.
