    Why? What is wrong there? What have you done? Usually something like this cannot happen for no reason.
    Have you tried to update BIOS or what?

    What happen exactly when you press power button?
    Try to remove RAM and HDD and try it again.

    Well, is sounds like a serious problem.
    Can be something wrong with motherboard or an part attached to mobo… I’m thinking about parts like CPU or RAM modules…
    Sometimes notebook does not boot due to RAM issue…

    You can check if new RAM modules would help but this is just an idea…
    I don’t see many options in your case… you can take the notebook to the technician who could check it…

    I was installing a new OS (Windows 8)

    when i restarted it(after it was done installing the OS), it didn't boot.

    Maybe it was a simply “bad luck” that this happened while Windows 8 installation.
    Try this simple workaround:
    - Remove battery and disconnect the AC adaptor
    - Then press and hold power button 30 sec long.
    - Connect the parts again (battery + AC adaptor) and try to power up the unit.

    If this will not work, test new RAM modules.
    In worst case your motherboard is faulty and this could be solved only by mobo replacement :(
