This seems to be a common issue with this model. If it is still under warranty send it back to acer. If not you can try this fix at http://eric.chromick.com/aa1/aspire-one-black-screen-of-death/
Will not hurt it anymore than it is.

Contact with notebook repairing engineer. Might be coz of some short circuit, BIOS corruption or any malfunction of the hardware.

You got two year warranty on it? My acers have always had only 1 year warranty.
The laptop is most likely unable to start up. In most cases its a hardware issue, should take the laptop to a local professional for a check or if your in warranty contact acer.
Possible reasons could be bad memory, overheating, failed mainboard, failed video adapter, loose contact between display and mainboard.
You can try reseating the memory in the bottom of the laptop, it will be covered with 2 screws.
Remove them, and take out the ram from the computer, make sure they are clean, do not use water, or clean them, you can use the eraser end of a pencil to clean the contacts on the memory modules.
Place them back in and make sure they are in the right away, only handle them from the sides.
If the problem still remains, unplug and remove battery again, (might aswell keep the battery removed untill the issue is solved.)
Remove both ram modules from the laptop.
Start up the laptop with no ram at all, it may beep or complain, or it may do noting, unplug after 1 minute.
Plug in the other memory card, plug the machine to power, try starting up, if it works, turn it off and place in the other aswell, turn on and see if the machine works, if it does, problem solved. If it does not work.
Remove both ram modules, try the other memory on both slots and try starting up each time, remember to unplug power every time.
If the problem remains then do the same with the other memory module try it on both slots.
Next thing you could check at home is the cables between the display and the mainboard, you can also check the display in a dark room or under a light and see if there is picture on the display but no backlight, in that case the issue could be the cables between the mainboard and the inventer or the inventerboard or the backlight itself.
This will require repair in any case take it to a local professional.

On my Acer Aspire 5534, up above the keys there are 2 buttons that are side by side. one is to turn the wireless off and on and the other one is to turn the mouse pad off and on.
