    I am guessing its a G3. Do you get any kind of power noises, any lights, fan noise, HD noise anything?

    Try a couple different power cords. If that does not work it could possibly be the PRAM battery. If that does not work then you most likely have a bad PAV board, which is basically a death sentence for a machine that age, its not worth fixing.

    what about the power supply?

    It could be something as simple as a dead power supply.

    Did you power-off last night or just sleep/leave it on?
    Was there a power outage that shut it down?
