Start up from your system installation disk by inserting it and holding down the "C" key. On the second screen the pull down menu will appear. Go to Utilities - Disk Utility and repair your hard drive if you can. If it does boot, then the logic board is OK and you need to look at repairing the system, re-installing the system or if the hard drive is not seen then replacing the hard drive.
