Take the battery off. Wipe the contacts with a clean tissue. Do the same for the machine having blown a few times to remove any excess dust.

Have you tried starting it with and without the power lead?

I had an Acer once that would only work when the battery was removed and the power cable plugged in.

If that doesn't help you may need to have it looked at.
