Ok, well, the Mac wasn't purchased new, my dad bought it from a guy he works with. The only thing I have that came with it is the charger. The charger itself is actually fried, and I am currently on another MacBook Pro and using its charger on mine. I did, however, purchase a Snow Leopard OS X update disk from the Apple Store recently because I wanted to use Bootcamp Assistant to put Windows on it. Without a disk, you can't use it. I was wondering if maybe there was a way I could boot it from the other Mac using an ethernet cable (I don't have firewire, and holding down the T key at boot doesn't even work). Anything else you think I could try?
EDIT: I have already tried reseting the SMC several times and still nothing.

I ended up taking the Mac in to an Apple Store, and they replaced the Hard Drive and the Logic Board. They said they couldn't get it to work, and sent it in to Apple. They replaced the keyboard/trackpad/top part and "clean installed the latest OS version." (They only put Leopard on it) I also bought a new charger. Turns out mine wasn't an apple, just an off-market brand and I think it fried my Mac. So, I've got it back and its just like a new computer. Sadly, I had iLife '09 and the GarageBand equivalent, and now have iLife '06 and GarageBand 3. I'm trying to find out if I can get iLife '09 back. Thanks for trying to help. Sometimes things just don't work out right.
