    About a year and a half ago i bought a acer V3-571. for the last 4 months, every once and a while, it decides not not turn on. this is what happens:
    When i press the power button the power button light was well as the power indicator lights turns on for only about 5 to 10 secconds then it turns off.
    The screen does not turn on, it just stays black.
    eventually, after pressing the button for a couple of days it decides to turn on.
    some times this problem lasts only a day but sometimes it last a couple of weeks.
    i have tried all of the typical things: press the button down for X amount of time, or strip the pc first then press the button. none of these work reliably.
    i just want to know what is happening and how i can prevent it from ever happening again?

    thanks for replying.
    yes it is plugged in, but i don't think it is the charger because the computer starts after a while.
    It happen for 3 hours today. it just sort of "locks up"
