Re: no picture and no sound
No picture and no sound means that either the operating system is not installed, the motherboard or hard disc drive is faulty, hard to say where to start as you don't know the last thing that happened to it to start the diagnosis.
If you don't own a hdd usb2 to 3.5" ide cable to firstly check the hard drive, you will need to take to a repairer and illiminate as you go along.

The power adapter id under powered by 1.32A that is why it takes a long time to charge and it is putting a lot of stress on the adapter and could cause it to overheat. The ticking sound could be the thermal cut out cutting the power to the laptop to prevent the power adapter from failing.
Is there a reason to reset the password, I think Acer have put it there to stop people from messing, because they would have fine tuned it. You will have to get in touch with Acer. Sometimes under the ram slots there is a round flat battery, if there is, take it out and leave for a minute, then reinsert it.
