I Just disassembled my acer and now i can't get it to turn back on

The light on the power adaptor is on and when I plug it into the laptop, the battery light turns orange for a fraction of a second before turning blue. It then stays blue but the laptop will not power up when I press the power button.

I have tried removing the battery for a while before retrying but this doesn't help. I also tried to power up connected only to the cable without the battery in place, but in this case there are no lights at all and the laptop is completely dead.

Well I would disassemble it and then put it back together, making sure to plug everything in and make sure its snug when doing so. Before you put the battery in or plug the power adapter in, press and hold the power button so it will discharge any static electricity in your notebook. After that, as long as your sure you have plugged everything in correctly, congratulations you had static built up in your body and didn't ground yourself properly thus discharging on your notebook.

Sounds like its permanently damaged. As long as everything is plugged in and placed appropriately (obviously I cant tell you if you did it right unless I actually see it) you have probably discharged yourself and shocked one of your components. The computer is a loss if that is the case.
