Sandworms, that is the exact problem I had after a power out. It doesn't look the same as ducast's problem though. I posted the same solution in another thread. Here's hoping it works for you too.
When the red LED on the power button would glow, but it wouldn't turn on. Try unplugging it and plugging it back in repeatedly and it will eventually turn on. If that doesn't work try moving it to another outlet then try plugging it back in and out.

The plug for the charger? its soldered into the motherboard. it requires a full disassembly of the laptop.
Just need to find a replacement for it. you can try contacting http://www.acerparts.com/ with the laptop details for the power connector / plug you can also look for it on www.ebay.com
computer repair shops should be able todo the job, really no need to replace the whole motherboard, just the plug. Also check is the cord of the power adapter broken? I had to take my power adapter, the black box in the middle of the cord from the wall to the laptop, one cable had came loose inside the power adapter, worked perfectly after I resoldered it in place.
I will take a look at mine tomorrow. Mine stays up because the nylon cord thingy is stripped. No biggy for me though. I have taken it apart so I know it is stripped I just can't remember how it all goes together.
