For the Acer Aspire 5520 I'm working on, (Acer Aspire 5520-5156, mode nol: ICW50)
Remove the three black screws under the battery, not the silver screws.
VERY carefuly pry off the power button cover. It will make 'snapping' sounds and if you where gentle nothing will be broken.
The keyboard has no screws holding it and can be slid toward the screen and very gently pryed out, taking care not to tear the ribbon cable, as mentioned before.
When the keyboard is out the cable can be released by gently pulling the cable lock on the header toward the cable, the thin (black in this case, it's usualy a different color than the white connector) plastic part of the connector I just use my fingernails, one index finger on each end slowly pulling till it releases.
Pull the cable out using the pull tab. You can just pull the flat cable out with the pull tab without releasing the calbe lock but you stil need to release the cable lock to properly put in the new cable, then push the cable lock back tight to the connector.

Pull The Battery... Unplug The AC Adapter....
Press and Hold The Power On Button For 30 Seconds...
Reinsert The Battery, Plug In Ac Adapter... Attempt to Power On..
Also Try Removing The Battery And Powering Up Using The Power Cord Alone.....
If Still No Power.... Remove and Reseat The Memory Modules...
You'll Next Need To Check To See If The DC Jack Is Faulty...
If It's Faulty, You'll Need To Desolder It, Clean The Board, Resolder a New One ON....
If Still No Power...
Check The Heatsink/Fan Assembly...it might be clogged...
Possibly Faulty Video / GPU Chip....Or a Shorted Out Motherboard..

It looks like your battery is either discharged or has a short circuit.
Plug the power AC cord in the laptop and let recharge the battery at least 3 hours before you try to start it again. If the computer boots up, enter the BIOS and check to see if you have a "battery check" oprion. If you do, start it and let it run until it is done (it may take several hours to complete). It will check the battery charge cycle.

Find a USB memory-stick, and find a computer with Internet access and an available USB port.
Put the memory-stick into the USB slot.
Browse to ACER's web-site, and select your specific model of the Aspire line, and select Windows XP, and select network-controllers, and download the device-drivers, and copy them onto the memory-stick,.
Walk the memory-stick to your Acer, and install the device-driver.
