Disconnect all peripherals and try booting form the OS CDs by holding C.

Does it chime? Mine did almost the same thing earlier today and I opened its casing and jiggled the motherboard a tad, re-assembled it, and everything was fine.

I guess everyone needs their motherboard jiggled every now and then:D
