Aspire A315-21 not turning on, had laptop for 5 days!

Hi guys, I've just bought my Acer aspire 3, A315-21 and I've completely underwhelmed with it, the specs looked promising but it's been a let down since I've bought it. I have had a few issues with it restarting randomly.

It was being used earlier on and I went to make a cup of tea and it was all black and wouldn't turn back on. I've tried taking out the power adapter, using a paper clip to reset the battery but there's a slight static noise coming from above the RAM that only stops for a split second when I'm resetting the battery. 

Please help, I'm on the verge of just either throwing it against a wall or just taking it back to the shop and buying a different brand.

    You should reset the battery with the notebook turned off! See these instructions: https://us.answers.acer.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/34843/~/acer-internal-battery-reset

    Hi, I've tried that as explained in the original post. Unfortunately that hasn't done anything at all. When I push the power button I get a slight whirring inside for a split second

    Is your notebook still under warranty? Is it still in the store exchange period? If it is not, I would check if this button is being pressed correctly:
