Harvester3 makes a point here most likely the battery is gone, don't worry it happens quite often batteries have a life time and they need to be replaced. Good luck!

Are you sure the battery is good? How old is the system and battery? Do you have any way to check voltage at the battery terminals?

How are you sure that the power is getting through? Is the AC light on the computer on steady? Does it blink if you bump the connector?
So often the jack of the adapter or within the machine fails. Often if the jack feels loose on the computer, it is bad.
However, if none of that applies, I would go into the control panel and look at all the power settings to see if anything is unreasonable. Similarly, I'd look at the BIOS settings. (You may have to hit a particular key, like F10, when the machine boots --- there should be information on the screen, in the manual or at the Acer site.)
If that doesn't turn up anything, I would check the BIOS version and carefully follow the instructions to load a newer version if one is available or reload the previous version. Why? I don't exactly know, but when I had a Sony VAIO machine witih similar symptoms tech support suggested this and it did work.

First of all you have to determine whether it's the battery, charger or the laptop itself.
Remove the battery and boot the laptop on AC power only, if the laptop boots up you can rule out the charger and the laptop, you may need a new battery if that is the case.

SOURCE: battery not charging
As you have tried to replace battery and still new battery is not getting charged in this case it seems there is hardware problem. Circuit which allows battery to charge is not working.

It's more likely your dc power jack was loose or broken. It need to be resoldered.

Tips for a great answer:
If your laptop works fine while plugged in but stops working while unplugged it's likely that either your laptop battery is bad or your laptop is not charging the battery properly.
Below are steps that can be taken to help identify the cause of this issue.
Leave power plugged in
Make sure the computer has been charging from the power plug for at least two hours before attempting to unplug it.
Remove and reconnect battery
In some situations the battery can become loose.
Removing it and then put it back into the laptop.
Use a third-party battery utility to determine the total capacity of the battery.
For example, BatteryCare is a free software utility capable of doing this.
Replace battery or AC adapter
If your computer is still in warranty we suggest skipping to the next step.
If the above steps have been completed, we suggest replacing the battery in the computer or AC adapter.
In most situations it's a bad battery.
hope this helps
Try removing the battery from the back and then running it directly through the AC adapter. Sometimes the battery and AC adapter have conflicts and it can cause a laptop to become inoperable.
If this doesn't fix the problem in any way, I would recommend trying a new battery or AC adapter.
hope this helps
