It can be1 of 4 things, the two most common issues is that the AC adapter is not powering up the unit, or the power connection on your notebook is broken. Either the Ac adapter will need replacing or your main board.

second possibility, is that the battery is shorting out the notebook, try removing it and powering it up with the AC adapter to see if it turns on, if thats the case, purchase a new battery.

lastly, it could be a bad power switch or mainboard, which will need to be sent in for repair as well.

    I know I shouldn't admit to this but, initially the AC adapter cord was frayed, (chewed by a dog or rat, perhaps a Rat Tierrier) ... this might have caused sour power, so I had tossed the bad block out and got an iGOgreen replacement poswer adapter using the 707 bit as the connector, per the instructions, the Acer fired up right away, I selected one of the users and their desktop displayed promptly. @ that point I was very pleased with myself

Aspire 1642 screen wont come on

Hook a spare monitor to the video output usually on the back, if picture is okay! the inverter board located under the LCD screen is bad, or the backlight behind the display has died, but if both show the same symptom it is the video graphics card that is defective normally built into the motherboard.
