Hi,
My name is***** will assist you.
I am sorry to hear that you are having this issue.
Unfortunately, this sounds like a motherboard failure. You will need to try this power reset in order to determine if it is a glitch with the system or if it is the motherboard.Try these steps please>
1.
Disconnect all external connected peripheral devices such as USB storage devices, external displays, and printers.
2.
Unplug the AC adapter from the computer.
3.
Remove the battery from the battery compartment.(if removable)
4.
Press and hold down the Power button for about 60-75 seconds to drain any residual electrical charge from the capacitors that protect the memory.
5.
Insert the battery and plug the AC adapter back into the notebook computer, but do not connect any of the peripheral devices.
6.
Press the Power button to turn on the computer.

I did try all of this, and have not had any luck turning it on....what causes the motherboard to fail....i just bought it last yr
Expert:  Randy Computer Tech replied 2 years ago.
The failure is not real common however it does happen. There is not a certain cause or problem that leads to the failure. The Acer may be covered by warranty. What was the purchase date?
Do you have the serial number?

okay, the 12 month warranty will not be in effect for the Acer.
Does your model have the battery reset pin hole on the back?

okay, when the Ultrabooks have these symptoms it is a failed motherboard almost every time. You can get it repaired for around $250.00-300.00
