Acer Aspire 3690 won't power up

L left my laptop powered on, when I came back, the screen was blank. When I tried to power on the led on the power switch comes on for approx 1-2 seconds, the disk starts to spin but then the led goes off and the disk stops. Approx 1-2 seconds later it does this again and keeps doing it until power is completely removed !

This looks terminal, hardware? Power supply?

It does this on battery only, on mains with battery removed and on mains with the battery fitted.

Any info / experience much appreciated !

Thanks

Alan

    hanks - Not sure why you can only see the first 2 lines - the problem is the laptop will not power up, it attempts to for around 2 seconds then goes off, then continually re-attempts (for around 2 seconds each time) until the power source is removed. Does this on battery and on mains power.

    It sounds like the battery is completely drained and the computer is turned on I would make sure the computer is turned off at the power button and then leave the computer with the battery in it for a least 4-5 hours more if you can overnight would be better that should put some charge in the battery and try turning it on after 5-24 hours with the battery in and the wall charger still charging I know this has happen to a laptop that belongs to my brother

Carefully open the screen lid and look at the back of the screen there is a type number [like LTN15ox3] you can then obtain a replacement screen from ebay searching for this type number.
However if the screen only shows a faint dark image the fault could be the screen inverter that powers up the backlight tube in the screen.
