If no message comes up it is a really serious problem, probably might be your motherboard.
If you have a Windows installlation disk, try to boot it up with it - don't install windows, just to test if it boots, though I'm quite pessmistic about it doing anything.
If falis, simply take it to a repair shop and cross your finger that they can repaird it
Try checking the lights on the front of your laptop, are any indicator lights on? I have an older Acer Extensa, but the quickest way for me to identify what its probably doing is that if I see two different colored lights I know that; 1. a green light means there is power to the laptop so more than likely it isn't actually off or all lights would be off, 2. if I see an amber/orange light on the front or near the power button its in a power setting mode, which means its either hibernating or sleeping. You can usually wake it by quickly tapping the power button or tapping the enter button, depending on your laptop you may have options hot keys on the keyboard. If it wakes by doing any of those things then check your power settings to see if you have it set to sleep or hibernate.
I have Windows 7, I left click on the start/ lower left Windows Icon on the task bar/control panel/performance and tools/ then on the left side list, power setting options. Or just click start and in the search box type power options, you'll see the direct link under the control panel section. I hope that helps. Try running troubleshooter too
YUP... sound like a motherboard problem. Could be a short somewhere. Try taking the Battery out and also the hard drive and put them back again. I have fixed such problems before by doing just that. GOOD LUCK !!
Normally the battery light will rapidly flash orange if the battery is defective. It will alternate between orange and green if it is too hot to charge. Or it will either flash orange or be a steady orange if the battery is low or completely discharged. Based on this and the fact that you cannot get it to stay on for more than 7 seconds, I would have to say that you need to recharge the battery by plugging the laptop into an AC outlet. After all, it can't run without the juice.
Right click anywhere on the desktop, open the screen saver tab, click on the power button at the bottom. You'll see a box that reads monitor, set this to never. That should take care of the screen shutting down. As far as the orange light, I'm guessing that's the battery light, and it's time for a new battery.(It should be green and flashes orange when the battery no longer works properly)
