Question IBM T42Laptop

I have a T42 and it will not boot-up and I can't get into the BIOS for boot-up.
I don't get and beeps for any error messages, I have removed the hard drive and the dvd/cd and still no beeps, what can I do?

Do you get any lights at all? Is the battery dead?

Can you get it to boot off a cd?
If so download the Ultimate boot CD burn the ISO using something like Nero or MagicISO and boot up, then run the harddrive diagnostics and see if your drive has died.
