my acer travelmate 4000 stopped working today. When i press the ON button, the button and the led lights up for a second and then dies, nothing on the screen, no cooling fan noise, no beeps, nothing..
I keep on pressing the button many times but still it still wont start, no boot page, no display, nothing.. like its dead.
The last time i used it was last night around 11 pm.
I guess I can assume that you have it plugged into the ac power, so you know its not a power problem.
We also know its not a problem with the power switch since the light turns on.
So that leaves, motherboard, cpu, and ram possible problems. Ram would unlikely cause such a hault. Even with no ram, I believe the computer would make horrible beeping noises.
So if its a problem with the motherboard or cpu, its pretty much trash, unless you want to waste the money on ebay or some place for another cpu to try to swap.

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.

You will find a key that has C facing upwards with an I in it. This is the power on switch.press it lightly. Three LEDs will turn green for a moment and then some more LEDs with start blinking. And finally you will get the Windows desk top.
I have seen this on several ACER Laptops. It is always the Motherboard. Contact Acer repairs and order a new motherboard. IT will likely be about $200ish dollars. Then follow one of the guides on the web for taking your laptop apart and replace the board.
