Computers often prevent themselves from turning on if there is a loose component somewhere within the case. Try the following:
Make sure any cards (network/video/sound/etc) are securely seated in their slots. You may want to remove and reinsert them into their slots just to be certain.
Completely unplug each hard drive and cd drive. Remove the cable from the drive and from the motherboard where appropriate. Re-insert all of the cables. Pay attention to the orientation of the IDE cables if your drives use those, and they probably do. It matters. Plug them in exactly as they came out.
Try turning your computer on. If this works, rejoice, otherwise:
Remove the ram from the machine and reinsert it back into the slots. Try powering it on again.
This should work, especially since your computer was just moved.

You can change the power supply, the whole box and wiring. The pc runs on 12 volts mostly on the board and it is dc. Realize the wall sockets are ac, it has to be rectified anyway. I don't think I would try direct since 250v is considerably higher than the 220v that it could handle, I think it would work but, don't think it would last long before burning out the power supply and cause you to replace it anyway.
Here's my point of view of you problem.
I have also experienced the same problem since it is always raining here in the Philippines.
I just have to ask a few questions before i can give a direct solution to you.
Please provide the following:
1. Do you have a voltage regulator in your computer set.
2. Do you hear a beeping sound everytime you turn your computer on after the incident happened?
3. Does the processor fan still runs after turning your PC on or not?
4. Kindly provide your computer specs.
Good day and should you have any questions regarding the questions, feel free to approach us.
the dreaded Blue-Screen of death.
Usually caused by:- Ram Failure ( memory Modules )
CPU Failure ( Processor Failure )
Hard-Disk faulty, not spinning et,c.
Cmos battery fault.
Missing/deleted/corrupted operating System files.
Possible Solutions:- remove cmos battery, from Motherboard for 10 seconds and replace. ( eliminates cmos/bios errors )
remove 1 stick of Memory ( Ram ) and test individually ( eliminates 1 or More Faulty sticks Of memory Or Slots )
remove, CPU Fan/heatsink, remove CPU and re-seat, re-grease with Artic-Silver or similar ( thermal-Compound ) replace heatsink/Fan. test.
Hope this points you towards a Sucessful repair.

When you say that the CPU doesn't work, what happens exactly? Does it not power on OR There are beep sounds heard OR there is an error on screen that you would like to share? OR ...
Assuming that the machine is not powering on at all .. here are few checks that you would like to perform...
There is a toggle switch (Voltage selector) at the back of the computer on the power supply unit, just besides where you connect the power cable .. make sure that appropriate voltage is selected.
Try connecting the computer to a different wall socket.
If computer is connected through the Surge protector or UPS then try connecting it directly to the wall socket.
Try using a spare power cable if available.
Remove all other connections apart from Power supply, keyboard, mouse and monitor and see if that makes any difference.
Remove the power supply cord from the back of the computer and press and hold the power button for few seconds .. this would drain the accumulated power from the CPU components .. now reconnect the power supply and see if that makes any difference..
Open the chassis and see that couple of wires run from behind the power button on the CPU to the big circuit board (Motherboard) .. make sure that the wires are properly secured.
Perform these basic checks and let me know and I would glad to assist you further.
Acer will help you, Acer is great on warranty issues.
Contact them and they will tell you where to send your laptop, the may even come home to you and collect it, then after repair bring it home to you.
"Error Smart" is malware and will slowly wreck the OS, you must un-install this programme from your computer and perform a registry clean, then, right click on "my computer" select "computer managment" and "event viewer" check the "system" log to find out what has caused the crash. What you describe sounds like overheating, so take the side panel off the computer and clean the dust from the CPU fan and from inside the case itself, please make sure you have the power disconnected from the back of the machine before you remove the side panel and make sure you "ground" yourself (keep one hand on the metal case)
hi gllwymiller; 1.check all your connections 2.check monitor and cpu power 3.when you power on your cpu, do you actually hear the fan turning or see your power led light up? 4. what OS are you using? 5. Feel the rear fan or your CPU, is it blowing out air?
