HP 2000-410US when turned on the power light button blinks 1 time every 5 seconds, nothing elas

1. Disconnect anything that is connected to your laptop. Usb Flash discs, External HDDs, Wireless Devices using dongles etc.
2. Make sure that your device does not receive any power i.e. Disconnect your ac cable, and remove battery from your laptop.
3. Hold down the power button for 5 seconds. This would drain remaining power from your laptop. But as the power cable and the battery are disconnected, you should not expect anything to happen.
4. Identify where your RAM is located under your laptop. Unscrew the cover off, then remove the RAM from your laptop. Replace the cover temporarily.
5. Flip over your laptop. Connect your power cable to the laptop, NOT THE BATTERY NEH! Then press the power button. Sometimes your laptop will make long beeps to let you know the RAM is not inserted in your laptop. But nothing will happen on your monitor because it needs RAM to show you something.
6. After those beeps, remove the power cable. Press the Power Button to drain remaining power on your laptop. Flip the Laptop and replace the RAM you have removed earlier.
7. Insert your power cable and try restarting your laptop and see what happens. I am sure by now you should have some response on your laptop monitor.

NB: While performing the above mentioned, remember PC or Laptop parts are delicate. Even static electricity can damage them. Thus before handling your laptop components, make sure you touch the wall or any large metal subject from time to time to discharge the static. Wear 100% cotton cloths as you are working on it. Bare feet even better to discharge the static

Hi What precisely do you mean by VGA display, is your laptop not displaying anything on lcd screen,or its having problem giving display on an external monitor connected via a vga port.
if there is no display on the laptop LCD screen, then turn the laptop on and observe for beeps sounds and hard disk spinning sound if still no display is available plug the laptop to external monitor and again restart the laptop. if there is no display on the external screen and laptop is displaying well in LCD, Then most probably you need to press some keyboard combination on laptop keyboard eg: Fn + f4 , refer to your laptop manual also.

Not booting the system. the screen is not displaying anything

please check if you will see the Power On Self Test (POST), wherein this test is like a DOS prompt wherein the Specifications of Intel is specified. But if you don't see anything on the screen, try to remove the cables and battery after you turn off the laptop. Then press and hold the power button for 8 secs. Reinsert the cables and battery back to the laptop and turned on the laptop. If no display appeared, call Acer to repair your laptop. Motherboard problem is the main reason why...

Doesn't start up power light is on though? connected to my computer monitor and there is no picture?

Then it is safe to say that you have a hardware problem.  The laptop is not making it through the POST sequence (Power On Self Test). 
Laptops are very difficult to work on internally - first, try to remove anything external.  USB drives, any add-on memory (not internal memory though), printer, anything at all.  Also remove the battery and plug the laptop into AC power.  Try to power on again and see if you get any response.  If you do, post back what happened and we'll go from there.
