Yes, it's not the hard drive.

More than likely it's your motherboard.

There's not much you can do besides trying to boot the computer without the battery, and removing and reinstalling the memory.

Hopefully you'll get lucky!

try it without the battery on the laptop. if it boots and stays on, put the battery back on and see what happens. If the problem persists, replace the battery. Acer will replace it free if you are still in warranty

Acer aspire 5050 can't turn it on


If you dont see any green lights and you dont hear any boot up sounds ( hd, fans, etc) try to take out battery and just plug in the AC adapter to a known good power outlet. Make sure your power plug is good too. If you hear boot-up sounds, see green lights but no display then toggle on the "fn" key and or try on an external monitor.
