Compaq R4000 Won't Boot

I have a user's laptop that when I try to power it up, nothing happens.  All I get is an amber power button, black screen, and nothing else.  I have tried reseating the RAM, the hard drive, and have even replaced the hard drive.  What can the problem be?  I don't know what the amber light means.  Any suggestions?

if you boot without ram, does it beep ?
did you try with battery alone, and from AC alone?
