Sounds like its trying to load windows but the harddrive is failing to respond, most of the time if it loads everything up to the windows itself its all done before initalizing the harddrive itself.. try putting the harddrive into another computer or usb external to check if its dead.. you might just need a new one =T not 100% sure though but its worth trying.

If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to identify the fault and possible fix :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3598095-faulty_laptop_lcd_screen
you could try pressing powere on key and F8 key on startup and hopefully it will take you into the repair options and try to use the last good known configuration
or the repair my computer
if this does not help or fix the laptop and you dont mind loosing all the data thay you have
personaly put onto it then you could try to press the power up key then straightaway press the
ALT+f10 KEYS both at the same time and this should take you into the factory restore options
then follow the onscreen instructions and it should take you back when the laptop was ist purchased and switched on
if this does not work then the hard drive may be corrupt or damaged
which normally means that it has to go back to acer for repair
or maybe a new hard drive cheap enough from ebay
and try to get hold of some factory restore disks from acer if you do not possess them
then fit the new hard drive normally located at the base of the laptop unless its a acer aspire one
and use the factory restore disks to reload the operating system
First off, does it power on....does the power on light show on the laptop when it is plugged into the wall outlet. If it does power on, do you hear the fan running and the hard drive clicking? Can you see if the hard drive indicator lights are active, they will be next to the power activity light. If you cannot see any lights at all, try another charger, the one you have may be faulty. If you can see a power light, but the laptop wont power on, then you very well have a motherboard issue...or your ac adapter is not putting out enough volts to actually power the system completely. Check power first, then think motherboard issue. You don't have to have a good battery in it if you are plugged into the wall outlet.
I recently had Acer Aspire One Laptop with very similar symptoms: No screen, no lights (those that indicates activities) except Power button. I first thought the Hard Disk is dead but it's not.
I contacted Acer helpdesk in Australia and they have sent me a document with BIOS update and instructions. I did what it says and then the laptop is back to normal. Yours may have the same issue - need BIOS update.
The Aspire One BIOS update requires a FAT USB drive with the updated BIOS and the BIOS Flash program, plugged it in, press and hold 2 buttons: Fn and Esc, then press Power button for a while.
You should seek Acer Support website. But you may need proof of purchase.
hmmm check out your power connection. see is the adaptor giving power to your lap when you connect this to laptop. There might be an indicator at the jack point of laptop to your adaptor.
If the adoptor is not working well then try to use another one of same configuration.
