so maybe the power adapter is not gone. i wish i knew someone with the same laptop

Acer Aspire 5315 DEAD!!
Wrong thing to do for you just wiped cmos out by doing that operation if HDD wasn't ACER OS with backup function.

you said had the acer logo before and now a blank screen...... means blank bios.
