My 2300 started same problems in Dec 08 (almost 2 years old) Its an overheat problem! With black screen the two blue lights an bottom left are on. Leave powered up and in an hour or so will shut down on its on, then will start back up normally but shut down again in about an hour.Correction 1. pull off back cover, blow out the dust. 2.Go to set up (F2 on power up and run fan cal) 3. Take the back cover off you will feel how hot the CPU and hard drive are that is because vents are too small for an aging laptop. Now take the cover and drill a double line of holes on each side of the hard drive vents, Next over the CPU (where the fan blows in air, drill a triple line of new vent holes in the cover). A 5/32 drill will be about right. You may also wish to purchase an inexpensive Belkin laptop cooler. About $19 at Best Buy. This solved my problem as I do like this little one for travel

Underneath the power button that you see is a small board with a tiny tactile button. These tactile buttons because they get used alot tend to go bad. They will get worn out and then eventually won't work.
Best thing to do is to go to this page courtesy of Acer:
There is a phone number there and they should be able to tell you if your laptop is under warranty. If its not, ask them the name of the board underneath the power button and its part number and you can search for it yourself on the internet to get the best price

Sound like a bad video card or its connection to the video inverter or screen.But mostly a bad video card and maybe high heat related failure.

I think it might be the motherboard, if its not regulating the voltage properly then to much will go thru the motherboard and the fan won't be able to cool things down properly. Eventually then the motherboard will fail and then no video like your having now.
Try these steps anyway just to be sure:
only hook up the AC Adapter keep the battery disconnected. See if it turns on, if you still get a blinking green light then go ahead and turn the laptop off.
At this point, unseat and reseat the memory one stick at a time in each slot one at a time. Try turning on the laptop after each stick reinsertion.
If that doesn't do it then disconnect the hard drive and the dvd drive from the laptop.
Then try turning on the laptop, if you still can't get video then the motherboard is bad and would need to be replaced.
At this point at least you would know for sure.
