This sounds like it may be a Power controller problem, (circuit that controls battery charging etc...) To fix this the mainboard usually needs to be replaced, which will mean that you will have to send it to Acer to be "serviced".

My acer Travelmate 242lc will not power on

First think , has it been dropped, jarred, banged, get the idea? Does it continue to blink, the HDD? Do you see a "ghost image" in the monitor in a bright light? Do you here sounds? You say "nothing else happens", meaning the light stops blinking? Shut down, unplug, remove battery, plug in, try to boot noemally.

I have an Acer 5670 Laptop, I replaced the HDD with a new SATA drive and when I powered up the laptop, the Video card fan starts, the CD drive cycles once, the drive light flashes 3 times, then it stops....

Sounds like it. Try taking out the hard drive, disconnect all usb devices and anything attached, and try to run POST again...Being a laptop, there is not a whole lot else you can do if it won't POST. YOu can try swapping in some different RAM that is known to be good also.

Acer travelmate 8006lmi when turned on only the power light and dvd drive work nothing on the display and nothing if you connect an external monitor either

The graphic chip is dead. replace the motherboard or reflow the graphic chip. I am not fan of BGA reflow. The seldom last beyond 90days.

Good Luck

Acer travelmate 2350 wont boot or display

I have seen this on several ACER Laptops. It is always the Motherboard. Contact Acer repairs and order a new motherboard. IT will likely be about $200ish dollars. Then follow one of the guides on the web for taking your laptop apart and replace the board.

Acer travelmate 4000 laptop Big problem

I guess I can assume that you have it plugged into the ac power, so you know its not a power problem. We also know its not a problem with the power switch since the light turns on. So that leaves, motherboard, cpu, and ram possible problems. Ram would unlikely cause such a hault. Even with no ram, I believe the computer would make horrible beeping noises. So if its a problem with the motherboard or cpu, its pretty much trash, unless you want to waste the money on ebay or some place for another cpu to try to swap.
