Answers :

This is mostlikely either a power management or motherboard or cpu issue.

\015\012easiest is to clear power management. try this first. remove powr and battery from the unit. hold th epower button on the unit for 10 seconds. replace battery adn power cord and try boot. If it works great if not read on.
\015\012
\015\012many of the laptops out right now will turn on breifly and then off if they do not get cpu signal or if the motherboard is damaged. check to see if the cpu is secure or reseat it. The location of the cpu on most acers required the removal of the keyboard and a metal cover plate, soem require the entire palm rest to be removed.
\015\012
\015\012When you do get the system to come on, note if the lights for caps lock, scroll lock and num lock make a pattern. if they do then these are codes to tell you troubleshooting checks. if they do not, some units allow for the F key or Fn key to be held when powering on to get diag codes. this depends on brands.
