Hello,

This is probably a no brainer, but here goes. I have a Lenovo G555 laptop running Windows 7. One morning, simply refused to boot. Hit power, fan runs, it tries to access the cd drive, then stops. Power light stays on, but it makes no attempt to access the HD. Fan starts again, but nothing else happens. No boot screen, beeps, nothing. Please help me out here. Thanks in advance.

Has any new hardware been added?

This generally isn't a good sign, usually a bad motherboard is what causes this type of no-boot. No boot screen or beeps means that the computer is unable to even initialize the video driver and POST process to give us an indication as to what is wrong.
If I am helping you and I haven't replied to your thread in 3 days, please PM me or bump it

The only oddness before it failed is that it suddenly stopped recognizing a wireless USB mouse. I was hoping the motherboard would not be the issue, but it's starting to look that way.
