Unplug the machine from power, remove the battery, press and hold the power button in for 5 seconds, reinstall the battery, plug it back in, and see if it will start.

Download RC.iso and burn it to a cd as an ISO image. You may need a burning tool like ISO Recorder to do this...be sure to get the version for the operating system you'll be creating the disk on. ISO Recorder will add the option "Copy Image to CD" to the right click menu. If you have burning software like Nero that will burn ISO Images, that will work, too.
Burn the RC.iso as an ISO Image to a cd and boot the machine to it just as you would the XP installation cd.
At the "Welcome to Setup" screen, press R to start Recovery Console. Choose the installation to be repaired by number (usually 1) and press "Enter".
When you are asked for the Administrator password, leave it blank and press "Enter".
At the command prompt, type chkdsk /r and press "Enter". (Note the space before /r) The disk check operation will start.
This will be a very thorough check of the hard drive and the file system...be patient and let it complete. It may appear to hang or even back up a few times...this is normal. 60 to 90 minutes is not unusual for this check...it may take longer in some cases.
Once the check completes and you are back at the command prompt, type exit and press "Enter". Let your computer boot normally to Windows.

Is your CD/DVD drive set as first boot device in BIOS Setup?
When booting to this cd, watch for the prompt to "Press any key to boot from cd" on one of the first boot screens. Press a key when you see the prompt.

Did you set it as such in the BIOS Setup?
