Hi all
i need some help asap. My Acer travelmate laptop won’t power on. I have changed wall power outlets, I’ve held the power on button fir 15secs and tried. I’ve held it for 30secs and tried. The power light is red - does that mean anything? The power adaptor cord warms up so I know that is working and of course the red light cones on when I plug it in. I’ve removed my hard drive and mouse. 
When I push the power on button there is a quick flash of light under the keys and then nothing. No fan noise either. 
Please any help would be great. Thank you 🙏🏻
