Please help...my computer was working fine this weekend...I put it on standby and when I returned several hours later, I found it off. I tried to reboot it, but nothing shows up on the screen and I hear a loud cliclking sound that seems to be coming from the CD Drive. It looks like it's trying to start up, but in this loop that doesn't allow it. Any ideas....?!

I unhooked both the CD unit and the power source, but I still get the clicking sound, and it still doesn't boot up.....
