Can't Get Mac Mini to turn on - no screen, no beep, only the fan, power light, and optical drive noise

I have an Intel-based Mac mini mid-2007 (Model A1176). This is the computer my kids use so I don't use it regularly. The computer had been working fine until one day my kids told me that it no longer works. The computer will not boot up. When I turn it on the fan turns, the white power light in the front turns on, and there is a sound that appears to be from the optical drive (rather than hard drive). I don't get anything to the monitor, nor do I get any dings or other start up sounds from the computer.

"did you drain the 'Flea Power'?

disconnect the power, press the power button for 20 seconds, reconnect the power and try again."
