Describe better what you mean by "but failed".

Did it go through the POST (Power on self-test), the BIOS startup?
Did Windows start to load? At what point did it fail?
What was on the screen when it "failed"?
Did it just totally power off or hang/lock up?
Did it beep? If so, what were the beeps? (short/long/how many)
