Question about Acer Aspire 5670 Notebook
I am too having the same problem, and would have to agree it is something to do with the battery, my solution has been to remove the battery, unplug the AC and remove the cmos battery and let it sit for a minute or two to clear everything out and try starting it with on the AC, it may take a few times but I have found that it starts. Also found if you just leave it as it is and remove the battery it will start but in one case it took over a week of trying, my first suggestion works for me more often and I figure reseting my clock is a small price to pay for using my laptop. I would also suggest not using standby or hibernation mode as this has resulted in me not being able to start my laptop. Now unless I have too I just leave it plugged in and running all the time, the battery still holds some charge but I figure once she dies then it time to upgrade.

My M2353 has a problem with the DC input/power jack. I found this out only after buying a new AC adapter, thinking that was the problem. Unfortunately $60 later I know that it isn't the adapter. Two things. First I called emachines only to find out that they will not replace just the power jack. They said I have to have a whole new motherboard put in to the tune of $250. Second, if anyone is interested in buying what is now my EXTRA AC adapter, just let me know.

Sounds like the battery died. This may have happened because the AC Adapter was not properly charging the battery. To see if a faulty AC adapter is the cause, check the following: 1) Is the indicator light on the AC adapter on? Most AC Adaptors have one. 2) Is the indicator light on the laptop on notifying that the battery is charging while plugged into the AC adapter? Try to borrow an AC Adapter from some one who has the same model laptop that you have. It is VERY IMPORTANT to get an AC Adapter with the same voltage and amperage ratings as your current AC Adapter. If not, yo urun the risk of damaging the electronics. If you do not have a spare, there are sever web sites that sell AC Adapters. http://store.comptick.com/brands-abit.html http://www.laptoptravel.com//AdapterSelector.aspx These appear to be the requirements of the AC Adapter. Double check these with what appears on the AC Adapter. Input: 110-240V 50/60Hz Auto-Detect International Compatible Output: 19V - 20V DC, up to 90W max If you are unable to find what you are looking for on the sites above, you can readily find what you want on ebay as well.
