Thinkpad R60 won't turn on affter install of Hardy Heron

I recently installed Ubuntu 8.04(Hardy Heron) beta OS on my laptop and everytime I tryed to go to hibernate it would go to this screen that said some weird error message. So I thought nothing of it and this morning I was really tired and wanted to go to sleep so I was in a hurry. So I accidentally put it on hibernate and it said the error message again..... So like I said I thought nothing of it and just turned it off. Then on accident, I turned it back on again... (dooh) and I was like "DANGIT!" and shut it off immediatly after. Now, about 10 hours after, my computer won't evenh turn on. I have the battery in and it's plugged up but when I press the power btton it does nothing... What do you think is wrong with it?
I bought it November of 06 if that helps any.

Try this:

(1) Pull the power cord and battery.
(2) Press the power button about 20 times then hold for 15 seconds.
(3) Plug in the power cord and try starting it.
(4) If it starts, shut down and install battery.

Good luck.
