My acer aspire (switch 10 to be specific) fell in about 1-2 feet bed 2weeks ago and when it fell, it went vibrating and wont turn on. I let it sit for about 10 hours until the vibrating effect stopped. But, even though the vibration stopped, it still wont open. I tried to plug it but the light wont come out. What could possibly be the problem?

You dropped it, it broke, that is the problem.

Try re-seating the RAM and hard drive and battery, maybe something got jarred loose. If that does not help, either replace it or bring it to a tech to examine.
 
Hi,

Please do try these troubleshooting steps that may help.
- Start by doing a hard reboot, remove the battery and unplug the AC adapter then press and hold the power button for 20 seconds then try booting it up again.
- If this will not work, do test the AC adapter if it's working properly. Remove the battery and power the laptop with just the AC adapter connected and see if it will boot up or not. do also try a different AC adapter that has the same voltage and see if it will work or not.
- Proceed with reseating the RAM's if trying a different AC adapter will not work, remove them all for couple of seconds then put them back in making sure everything is seated properly.
- If it will still not work, connect an external monitor and see if you'll get any display from it. If there's a display on the external monitor that could mean that the problem is the built in display.
- But if there's still no display on the external monitor that means the problem lies in the motherboard.
