Acer aspire notebook hard drive start to spin up and stops


I have a acer aspire 5515 noebook that when I attempt to book, the fan and hard drive starts for about 3 - 5 seconds and stops. The power lights remains on and the screen in black. After about approximately 30 seconds later the cooling fan comes on and run untill I press the power button and hold it in for about 20 seconds to shut the power off. Is this a sign of a failed CPU? failed Bios? Any help with this problem will be greatly appreciated
