I have had a similar problem but not with this PC. Some power cords look the same but are slightly different in design. They may fit but often the cords are built differently and over time the pins wear and lose contact.
First, try another power cord from something you know is working. If this doesn't solve the problem then we need to look at the power supply itself.
That may have blown or overheated and cooked something (it happens). If the CPU fan is dirty with dust and you use the PC on non-hard surface ie. no air flow underneath, you will cook the thing.
The fact that the power supply doesn't light up indicates to me its simple power cord problem or a dead supply.

Thanks for using FixYa. You will need to reset the Laptop if it is not starting up. Follow the procedure as under to reset it---
Remove all connections to and from the laptop. Now remove the battery and press and hold the power on button for 2 minutes. Release the power on button. Slip in the battery pack. Plug in the power to the laptop and to the wall. Please do not plug in any other devices and now try the Laptop powering it on to resolve the issue.
Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

SOURCE: My acer aspire won't power up
Try to connect your PC with the battery on the power outlet if it lights and charge normally. If the lights still orange, try to open the hard disk case and pull it out then try to put it in place again. If still doesn't go, try the memory card and clean it.
But I suspect that the battery has been overly charged. Try to look for another battery of the same model if it works with another and new battery.

i would assume somebody has to open the Laptop and replace the powerbutton. If you want to pay to have somebody do it for you there is a third party Acer Repair Service. However, if you want to do it yourself, the part is available on ebay. Here's an Acer Repair guide. Maybe a tech savy friend can do it for you.
