    I have an Acer Aspire 5349-2899 and had installed a new fresh win 7 ultimate and was working great, put the laptop up for a month and went to turn it on and nothing but a slight blink on the power light on the front. I have flashed the bios, re-seated the memory remove the HDD and seated it again, everything i can think of including using a different power adapter and battery both, yet the same, only a blink on the front power light and no power up, hope someone will have a suggestion i haven't thought of, if the power socket has gone bad i don't know why it would but at this point maybe so!!
    Please help if you can. :confused:

    Take out the battery and try powering up just from the wall outlet.

    The only thing I can think of is that the board battery is dead and causing an issue. See if you can replace the board battery they are usually CR2032. There is a possibility the board is dead, and you might have to RMA it.
