Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Notebook
It worked fine yesterday, I have a power light on when I plug into AC but pressing the power button does nothing. I do not have a battery light on, I removed and replaced the battery several time but made no difference.
Try leaving the battery out overnight. Sometimes it takes a while for the internal electronics to go 100% dead. Also, try holding down the power button for 10 seconds; that occasionally helps. Alas, it looks like you have a hardware failure, so the above may not work. Is your data backed up? If not, the drive is easy to remove and aspire 3680s are cheap on eBay.

Sounds like it could be the power button going, I am having the same problem.on my 3680, I got an extended warranty so I will see if they can fix it, I suggest you do the same if youi can.

I have the same problem - only happens sometimes. When it happens, try to press the power button and leave it for a while, then it may start a few minutes later. I found when this happened and I managed to get in later, the system time (not date) always a few hours different. I suspect this is something do do with the CMOS battery failure.
