Windows 7: Laptop doesn't show the BIOS or anything else after pressing start

10 Dec 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit
Laptop doesn't show the BIOS or anything else after pressing start

3 year old Sahara Notebook 2gb Ram, Intel Core Duo T2250 Processor. 1.7 GHZ, ATI xpress 200M graphics card. Win 7 Ultimate 32bit

Hasn't given me problems for the last few months, until recently.
What happened. I was in school studying, shut down the laptop, took a 15 minute walk to my student residence. When I tried to start the laptop. It showed nothing on the screen, not even the BIOS screen.
Thought it was a faulty screen, I connected it to another monitor and even a projector. Nothing still showed on them.
When I insert a Win 7 Installation disk in the DVD drive, I can here it humming but still no display. The fan too is working plus the power on and charging lights are working to
Help me please?
Is it the BIOS or? Can it be flashed?
I'lL appreciate all the help. Thanks
