Probably, it's a dead power-supply.
Take the desktop to any computer-store.
They will open it up, and sell you a COMPATIBLE power-supply,
and maybe even install it for _free_ (the smaller the computer-store, the more-likely that they will, if you purchase from them).

Try letting the computer sit without the battery for a few minutes, and also without external power. Then try plugging in your external power WITHOUT the battery and try to start it up. If it does, add the battery while it is running. Then try it with the battery only.

Sounds like a motherboard issue. The sound you are hearing is probably the fan running so your board may not be totally shot. Generally, when the computer won't start at all that is the issue. The only other thing I can think of is the power supply but your fan probably wouldn't run either.

Computer wont start acer aspire L-100


CPU overheated? When you cool it down it will start. You can check whether there are lots of dust on the CPU fan and the chase of the machine, they might block the air flow and overheat the CPU.

When I switch on the computer there is nothing on the screen


Do you hear anything during startup, beeps, fans or drives spinning, lights on the front or back of computer flashing or lit up? Do you hear the Windows starting sound?
Let us know more then we can troubleshoot better. It is starting to sound like 1 of 3 things, Power supply, Video card or motherboard.
Situation #1: If you get a blank screen and no sounds or movement it either indicates that the power supply unit (PSU) has failed or something on the motherboard has failed, preventing normal startup.
Situation #2: If you get sounds and lights but nothing on the screen then it indicates a failed or loose video card.
Always try a different power outlet that you know is working. (Eliminate the easy stuff first!)
If it is out of warranty, Try opening up the case, with the power off, of course. If you have Sit #2 and have a video card that you can reseat try that.
Also take the time to inspect the capacitors on the motherboard (they look like tiny soda cans) and check for tops that are bulging, swelling or leaking anything. Capacitors should be perfectly flat on top. If you find these then your motherboard is bad (well technically the capacitors on your motherboard are bad). The caps will need replacing to fix (not a job for an amatuer). If it passes the visual inspection then it may just be your power supply is bad. Notice that a bad PSU does not mean you are getting no power, just not enough to start and run the computer.

Speakers work for just a second when windows starts up


Try to uninstall the sound card, shut your pc off, take the sound card off, attach it again and turn on the pc. Then reinstall the drivers and see whether the same problem occurs or not.

Thanks,
