Here is a link to the Apple troubleshooting light meanings. If this does not help you need to find a copy of the AHT disk for your computer and try to run the diagnostic test. Are you hearing any sound--seeing any lights?

This is from official Apple sources

1. Reseat the video card

2. Reset the logic board ( shut down, unplug, wait 15 seconds, plug back in

3, Verify that the power cables are fully connected

4. Check for trickle voltage (see next for instructions on this and a host of other diagnostics (I just found this and it's great)

Yes, I thought that was great. I was actually looking for the LED codes from your answer when I found it.
