mbp is not powering on despite grey screen

My MBP is not powering on despite the screen showing the startup grey window with apple logo and the wheel turning. Tried to change the memory chips, didn't help. Need help - lots of my important data is in there.

Start up from your original or retail Snow Leopard DVD by inserting the disk and restarting holding down the "C" key. Go to the second screen pull down menu to Utilities > Disk Utility. Select your hard drive icon in the left hand column and repair the drive. Then repair your permissions. Should this work, get an external backup hard drive and use Time Machine on a regular basis to keep your data backed up.
