Swift 3 won't turn on

My mom just turned on her BRAND new Acer Swift 3 then went to the kitchen for a drink and came back to a black screen. Now the POS won't even turn on. I would take the battery out but it has some weird Star shaped screws that are perfectly sized to fit neither my regular screwdrivers nor my micro screw drivers. 

Is there a solution to this or did my mom just buy a very fancy cutting board?

    First try pressing and holding the power button for about 10 seconds. Let go. Then momentarliy press it again try to turn it back on.

    If no joy, look at the bottom case. See if you can find a pinhole with a battery symbol next to it. Gently press a paperclip into the pinhole for about 30 seconds to disconnect the battery. Let the thing rest for about 15 mins. Then try to turn it back on again.

    If still no joy, your Mom simply got a lemon, not a POS or a cutting board. Return it to the vendor/seller for a refund or exchange ASAP.
