Open the case ( i take it your warranty has expired ) and check all connections, unplug the wires from the powersupply and plug them back in, when you try and switch it on, do any of the fans start spinning.. you probably have a dead CPU of motherboard..

Determine what CPU you have and borrow the same socket type from someone else if you can, slot it in and check, works = dead CPU

Good Luck

My acer aspire m3641 just shows black screen

Is the computer booting? Fans spin? LED's blink? Sound? Have you tried another monitor? If so, check and reseat ALL cables. The specs indicate you have Integrated NVidia 7050 Graphics Adapter. You may need a aftermarket PCIe x16 Graphics Card to install in a open slot. Verify the cables are good and the monitor works on another computer first.

Please check to see that the LED light on the motherboard is lighting up. Also, if the BIOS appears on the monitor, please make sure that the hard drives are properly connected and that you can hear then spinning and/or see the Hard Drive LED light up. It sounds as if your motherboard is receiving power, but something else is not. Please also make sure that your processor's heat sink is properly seated and secure.

Boot up

Ok, all I can suggest it to do it all again. If this doesn't work, you will have to get a Windows install DVD, and then, put the, Windows Install DVD in PC, set BIOS to Boot from DVD, boot of DVD, bootup off DVD, and try and perform a "Start Up Repair" if that doesn't work, then you will have to do a full re-install of that Operating System. Ensure you Format the drive NTFS, and then install Windows. it would also be a good idea, to go to the ACER site, and download ALL Drivers for your PC, put them on a Flash drive, or burn to DVD, now you will be able to install the correct drivers at install time. This is often a help, if the Ethernet,or WiFi drivers don't work, and one couldn't get on the 'net to download.

I have Aspire T300 and now I power off the PC then turn off at the powerpoint - On start-up the next day the time clock has stopped and check settings and calender is stopped - any clues?

Yes, your little onboard battery that keeps the CMOS backed up has probably gone flat.  The PC needs to be opened up to replace this little flat shaped battery.

your monitor power light is on? lcd?
maybe a backlight issue?
have you tried a different monitor?
if the pc is booting up it may be the monitor, if your pc is not, yes it could well be the processor or the motherboard itself.

Acer Aspire T300 takes several hours for light on start up switch to come on and then the computer will then boot up okay. Have to keep the computer on all the time so that I don;t have to wait all this...

My first thought is that you are right. My second thought is that your computer is probably a couple of years old and some power supplies will wear out. Especially if there's a lot of dust bunnies running around. I'd first take a vacuum to it. Put the vacuum right on the fan of the power supply and let it spin it up, then move it to a spot opposite to that. If you can, remove the case side and vacuum inside as well. Get all the nooks and crannies, but be careful you don't knock anything loose. No guarantee it will help, but it just might.
