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.
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.

Make sure you do not have any devices plugged in to the computer like a USB flash drive or a MMC. Usually what you have to do about that is to drain the power of the computer. Turn it off, remove the battery, unplug the AC adapter and then press the power button for 5 secs. Turn it on using the AC adapter alone. if you still get the same message, You will have to physically open the back of your laptop and reseat the Hard drive. If it still wont correct the problem, restart you computer and either press f2 or delete to enter the BIOS page. check if the HDD is properly detected and try to reload the BIOS defaults. now if any of these wont work, call ACER and most probably your Hard Drive is bad.
yes you have a problem inside your laptop.find the slot of memory then remove easy the memory then make a clean the memory then put it back again and try to but the unit.thats all...good luck and i hope its done..thanks
This is odd, one issue may be the external button may not be making contact with the button underneath if you're feeling brave you can try and pop the panel between the keyboard and the screen off and try and press the button manually and see if that helps, if not there may be a problem with the actual AC jack itself. Are you getting a charge light when the laptop is plugged in? It's also possible that your AC adapter may have gone bad. the only way to test this that i can think of offhand is to use a multi-meter and see if you are getting the correct voltage from the plug. good luck and let me know what you figure out
