Try taking out battery and plug in power. If it works, battery is faulty. If not,
Try taking out your hard disk plug in power, if it works, hard disk is faulty. If not,
Try taking out memory card, if there's a sound, memory card faulty. If no sound, it's your motherboard that is causing the error.
Note: If machine is under warranty no need to pay for the repairs.

My Acer Chromebook 13 will not power on or charge so can anyone help me with my problem?

try this: remove battery, remove power cable, push and hold down the power button for 1 m (over 60s) do not short time. release the button, insert the power cable. wait 10s then push and hold power button till you see any lite flash release and see if you boot.
some time the static is built and that causes failure to start.
above should clean any static and allow reset of power adapter to function. if yes,. then once you shut down . insert the batter and ;et it charge for 3 mins.. then try to start.

Stuck sleep mode

The solution to no post on a computer is to remove everything that you can, take out the hdd, the ram, and optical disk and see if it boots. If it does, put the RAM back, then try again, if it does, put the hdd back and try again. It is a process of elimination. If everything is removed and it wont boot, it may be the motherboard. I have also seen bad batteries do this. There is a chip inside the battery that wont let the machine boot when the life of the battery is expired.

Advent laptop will not turn on

Test your battery on another similar laptop or use a known good working battery just to help rule the batter out. If it does not power ON using AC adapter, it could be something on the motherboard or your AC adapter. I suggest you first check the output of your AC adapter using a multimeter. The voltage reading you get should equal the one on the adapter's label.

Also check DC connection (where output jack of adapter plugs into the laptop) as sometimes it breaks and does not make contact with the motherboard.

And lastly may be you can try a power drain... remove the battery and unplug ac adapter. Press and hole power ON button for 30secs at least. Put back the battery and plug back AC. Power ON as normal.

Try removing the battery from the base. There is a sliding switch that will unlock it for easy removal.
make sure there is no power coming to the laptop.
Press and hold the power button for 5 seconds.*This should drain static from the motherboard
plug JUST the power cord back in.*To prevent any battery issues messing everything up
Press the power button.
If it boots you can put the battery back in.
* On my posts, i will try to explain what everything does for people who want to know
