Question about Acer eMachines eM2501162 Netbook
Had same problem ... would press on button and hard drive would spin for 3 seconds and stop. I would have a black screen with a non responsive keyboard.
*** I removed power cord then removed battery. Replaced power cord and started computer without battery and it booted right up. Why - I don't know, that is for another to tell. This has happened 2x in 3 months. '08 E-Machine Netbook (windows xp).

I spoke with eMachine and they will only say that it is a hardware problem. I bought the recovery disks and they would not boot it from an external drive. Their only solution is to send it along with $99 additional dollars plus tax. Really... let's see if over 2,000 people have this problem and they send them $99 then they make an additional $198,000 off those who bought it. I tried alt f10, delete f2, and ctrl f8... all suggested by eMachine support and they do not work. I think more people need to report it to them

If the initial display is coming and machine is not booting into OS then the issue is linked with OS and you need to recover it.
If there is black screen at all please refix the battery once and check. If this does not work please check whether power is there in the machin eor not? If power is there issue is with mainboard or RAM.
Refix the RAM once (will be in chamber in bottom of the notebook). If the issue is not resolved then you may have to call service center.
