If the unit sparked, then the motherboard is definitely bad. Also it could have taken out the memory. Then there might be residual effects after repair the unit. I usually advise my clients to purchase a new laptop, rather then pouring money into an older unit. Laptop prices have come down, here are some examples:
$599-$649 at Dell:

$349 and up at Global Computers (very good service and reputable):

Acer Aspire 5610Z dead battery & malfunctioning power adapter


But before you buy a new battery, You need to again repair the power plug where your adaptor's plug is inserted so that it will not create any problem later. There might be loose connection or sort wiring.. Good luck..

Black screen, power and battery are ok


Hi,

Check fuse in plug first...!

Take the battery out and then plug the power adapter in and try to power it on, if it comes on power the laptop off again remove power adapter and put the battery back in and plug the power adapter back in.
If it didn't power on or light up on the laptop then the power adapter has gone faulty, buy a new one.

Power it on again, if it doesn't power up at all and there are no power lights the battery has come to end of its life.

If it powers on fine, then it just locked up, one of those things.

Thanks

The power button doesnt seem to be working


It sounds like a short in the button itself. If you have a soldering gun, take it apart and resolder the connection. This is typical for Acer laptops.
It's either the button itself or the jack where the power supply plugs in. It's not real difficult.
