It will be Two of the four electrolytic capacitors in the power supply will have failed. Cost about $1 ea to buy and if you are half handy with a small soldering iron they are easy to replace. We have had in excess of 50+ Acers fail at work and I have managed to fix everyone that I have had a go at.
