Dell Latitude E6500 XP pro won't boot this morning (worked just fine up to last night).

Screen/graphics card must be OK since on power-on, we get a fraction-of-a-second Windows Logo, some dark blue screen, then a dark screen.

I've tried pressing F8, F2, and even DEL, but don't get any diagnostic or Safe Mode option screens.

Thanks all in advance.

Is the system under warranty?

Dell doesn't seem to provide much in the way of support documentation that might be useful.
