Answers :

I have the same problem. The power light flashed a few second then off. Fan on a few second then off. Turns out it is the memory. Use memory of same type or spec from another laptop. Buy one and if not the case return it. \015\012\015\012Seems Acer uses crappy parts that fail over time.\015\012\015\012BTW, I tried all - remove battery, hard drive,...
Try taking out battery and plug in power. If it works, battery is faulty.
If not, try taking out your hard disk plug in power, if it works, hard disk is faulty.Try taking out memory card, if there's a sound, memory card faulty. If no sound, it's your motherboard that is causing the error.

Note: If machine is under warranty no need to pay for the repairs.
