I have the same problem! I received a response to my email telling me to disconnect adapter and battery, hold the power button 30 minutes, connect ac (make sure it's plugged), turn on, wait 1-7 minutes, then attach battery after windows boots. After several tries, it still hasn't worked. When I turn on the system, my power led stays green, but the hdd indicator is not lit. My battery can still recharge, but the screen is still black, and there is no sound.
try to power drain pc first. to do that, turn pc off, remove battery and ac adapter. press down power button for 15-20 sec, then but all back in and try to turn pc on. if still no go, you may need to replace battery or ac adapter, f it still wont work, possible motherboard replacement is needed.
Turn off notebook. Remove the battery. Press Power button. Notebook should start working. Wait for 15 secs. If the screen still blank press Power button and hold it for approx. 4 seconds until notebook is powered off. Then press power button again. Bingo, problem should be solved.
Does it sound like it's starting up at all? Is the problem that only the screen turns blank? You might have just disabled the standard output. Try pressing Fn (bottom left on the keyboard) and the F5 on the top a few times to see if the screen toggles back on.
You might also try to run it without the battery, and on the battery only in case it's a faulty battery or power supply that causes the problem.
If not, it sounds lsike a serious problem, so if there is any chance of the waranty still being valid I'd call acer support asap.
