Gateway laptop won't boot

My Gateway MT3422 laptop suddenly won't boot. Please help me figure out what to do.
I had Windows Vista and Ubuntu dual installed. I was using Ubuntu when the system crashed and the screen went dark. I forced a shutdown and thereafter the computer has refused to boot. When I press the power button the lights on the front of the case come on and the fans and drives spin up, but there's no beeping and the screen stays dark.
Is there any hope for reviving this system? If not, what's the best/cheapest way to recover my data?
