Unhappy Dell Inspiron N7010 Won't Boot?

I have this Dell laptop, and whenever I press the power button, the little LED light turns on for about 30 seconds, then just turns back off. The screen doesn't power on, the fan doesn't start, it's fully charged, and the hard drive doesn't start spinning. The DVD drive definitely starts warming up though, as it makes that little annoying noise that I'm sure optical drive owners have all heard before. Anyway, point is it won't start and I can't figure out why. I was going to take it to Geek Squad, but I wanted to see if I could fix it on my own for free. Any ideas?
