It looks like there is a short somewhere inside the laptop. Could be the mobo, or just about anything else connected to the power supply.
Try disconnecting the power connector on the mobo, then try plugging in the power plug and see if the light still goes out. If it does not go out, then the problem is the mobo. If not, then somewhere else. Try disconnecting the power from one component at a time to eliminate the various components. Also look for wires that are shorted together or connectors that are inserted improperly.
If thelaptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.
Remove the main battery from the laptop and try power, if it works the battery is bad, if no change the charger needs to be checked for proper voltage. Since your laptop is less than a year old you should have warranty for up to the year, check this asp and find your paperwork should verify.
You need to replace your old battery. Don't over charged your battery. If you are using your laptop in your house it is better not to use it with battery. Just use the power adaptor/supply only. Then make sure you will drain the battery let say once a week. =)

My first guess is that your laptop is over heating. Even with a fan underneath, if the bottom vent is clogged with dust, the CPU will still get too hot. Does your computer last longer when you run less programs? I would check for dust around the fan inside your laptop. There's a video on youtube showing an acer being disassembled:
Although it may not be your laptop specifically, hopefully it will head you in right direction. It would be a bad idea to blow the dust further back into your computer, so you may have to loosen some screws and buy a electronics duster from an office supply store, but it should solve the problem. I've ran into this a lot over the years, specifically with Acer and Dell computers. Hope this helps!
How old is the laptop? If it's older then 1 year it's just getting old. I recommend taking the battery out when it's plugged in for long periods of time. Batterie's that are being charged all the time will die faster, of course this wont help you now, but for future ref. I hope this helps.
