    Is it plugged into AC adapter?
    Is the battery charged to provide energy?

    If it is not plugged in to AC adapter,plug it,if it does not work,try again by removing the battery.

    If there is still nothing,un-plug it from AC adapter,remove the battery,and press and hold the power button about 40 seconds.

    Otherwise,it burned out.Also,you can contact with Packard Bell and request a replacement,if it is still under warranty.

    If it still not works,unplug it and remove the battery,wait about like a day.Some computers wont open(boot) until the system is completely cool.

    Also I can help you more if you answer my question,

    Do you remember how the last shut down was?When it overheated did it shutdown instantly or the Windows shut off the computer normally?Was there a blue screen and did you hear a smell like burning?(not quite possible but only asking :D)

    Good luck.
