Motherboard is bad and will have to be replaced unless of course the AC Jack on the back of the laptop is loose. That would cause the ac adapter not to charge and then you would have to take the motherboard out and put solder on each leg on the bottom of the ac jack to make sure it stays in place then the ac adapter can charge the battery properly.
Even going thru the solder method the motherboard could still be bad and have nothing to do with the ac jack.

we had a similar problem the ac jack socket burnt out so we got a replacement part from ebay and my husband put it in and hey presto it works it cost 6 pounds for the part whereas a company to fix it wanted 100

This is a sample of what you can try to do to diagnose a non-starting computer, If these don’t work, realize that most likely a system board (motherboard) has failed or the actual power trim strip above the keyboard has failed.

sounds like you "MIGHT" have a bad battery. But before you go shopping try to reset you battery..
This was acers response:
Recently it was identified that a small number customers were experiencing a problem with the battery where it would not hold a reasonable amount of charge. We have released an update that should be applied to your computer to resolve this issue. Please complete the processes below and should you have any problems please do not hesitate to contact Acer support on 1300 365 100 or log a service request online at www.acer.com.au/helpdesk.
Thank you, Acer Support
THey also sent me a word doc with the process and a zip file with the BIOS update. I can not upload the up on these forums but if you go to acer they should respond within 1 hr. I sent my request at 1700hrs on a Sturday afternoon and got a response within 40 mins.
** if you need help with that then, this is how you do it. **** After download Acer Aspire one – battery not charging.
Solution: Update the bios as follows:
1. Go to www.support.acer.com
2. Click on Driver & Downloads
3. Select Product Family “Netbook”
4. Select Product Line Aspire One
5. Select your Product Model i.e.: AOA150 (located after MFG.Date:xxxx AOA 150 – xxxx)
6. Click on the BIOS tab below
BIOS revision 3309 (and later) has a fix for battery charging particularly the 6-cell batteries, however if you have the latest BIOS and your battery still isn't charging a good solution is to power down the computer, remove the battery and unplug the AC power cable then push and hold the power button for a whole 2 minutes (nothing will happen, we're trying to completely drain all residual voltage from the mainboard to reset it), then release the power button, install the battery and power up the computer, it should now recognize the battery and begin a normal charge cycle.
I have read other posts that claim to hold the power button in for 1 minute which I tried and it did not work, you must hold it in for the whole 2 minutes. (which is probably what you were advised to do,as you mentioned.I just like to cover all the bases,)
