Re: Power ON/ nothing on screen-
enter the bios setup, if you can boot the computer/laptop. Usually F2 on bootup, it will say entering Setup.
Then scroll through the pages to see if your hard-drive is recognised by the system.

This sounds very much like a dead motherboard. I would suggest you get a professional to look at this or send it to acer. Visit thier site if you wish to. I would offer more help however laptop parts are expensive and tedious to replace.
Starting with the easy stuff: Try plugging in the power cord, but not the battery. If that works, your battery is either dead, or the circuit for it is shorted out. Are there any signs of life? When you press the power button, do you hear any fans? do see any lights? Does the screen flicker? Your RAM may be dead if it does.
This could be a Power/Switch Problem.
Solution:- Leave the laptop turned Of And charge the battery to Full Capacity. ( usually between 4-16 Hours ) depending on capacity.
This will also fully charge the CMOS ( memory battery )
then boot the laptop up, and see if this solves your problem.
If not i,d suggest running a scandisk or hard-drive diagnostic program, to ensure that you have no Viruses-bad sectors on the hard-drive.
If you need further assistance please don,t hesitate to ask for more help and advice.

Hi, sorry to hear you are having problems. When this happens it usually suggests that the CPU/system board has failed. If the laptop is still under warranty I would suggest taking it back because this is something that will be covered and they should be able to fix it or replace the laptop itself. If not you may have to pay to have the system board/CPU replaced. Good luck and hope this helps. Si :)
