Fault at its main digital board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.
In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.

The password was set by the user/administrator, owner and is only recoverable by entering that password. As passwords are randomly written, recovery is not practical. Western Digital can help but there will be no data on the drive when you get it going and it will be cheaper to purchase a new hdd and throw that one away. ALWAYS keep a record of passwords!

Power computer on. Hold Alt and keep pressing F10 at the Acer logo. You may need a password. If you have used Erecovery before you would have been asked to create a password.
If your first Erecovery the default password is 000000
Select Factory
If this fails, your recovery partition is probably corrupt, and you'll either need to contact Acer for recovery disks or use a Windows 7 installation disk

It appears that your computer is unable to load the operating system. This could be caused by a defective hard drive. Some computers have built in diagnostics so check with the manufacturer to see if your model has this option.

Generally a power supply failure. The monitor has either it's own power supply or is fed by a different circuit from the computer.

Right now you would need to install either Windows 7 or Windows 8.1. Neither is as good as 10, and will not be supported for much longer. Microsoft is also currently pushing Windows 10 upgrades to users, so you may be either encouraged or eventually forced to upgrade.

If you still want to install a different version you MUST have a valid install CD/DVD and product key. Put the CD in the drive, start the computer and press any key when prompted to ("Press any key to boot from CD or DVD"). The install will wipe out any previous version of Windows (choose format drive) AND any data or other programs you have on the computer.
Don like Windows 10 Here how to uninstall it

I just fixed a laptop with windows 7 freezes

windows 7 support has ended
all you need ot do is reduce the number of programs the computer is running

C drive needs lots of free space

if you want to keep the computer ..these things help

first store what you want to keep on to usb sticks
documents ,pictures ,files ,

not on the hard drive

delete all the unwanted items off the c drive
look into the users ..remove "Temp "

go through all the programs on c drive and uninstall
as many non windows 7 and unused microsoft programs and also unwanted computer games and printer drivers
clear all the downloads
clear the memory cache
defrag the c drive
scan for virus and troguns

if using versions of office above 2000 will slow /freeze the pc

windows 7 when released was based as a 32 bit and some x64
window 10 can be uploaded only if window 7 has upgraded to stage 3 but it will be slow
stuff that is X 86 will slow windows 7

If you can see the drive in Disk Management in Administrative tools its a good start. In a command prompt type: -

c: chkdsk / f

Note replace c: with the drive letter of the drive in . The /f switch will fix any issues.

If this fails try Testdisk (you will need to buy this) but read the instructions first. I have resurrected a few drives with these.

There are professional services to get data of drives if necessary.

As a last recourse put the drive in the refridgerator/freezer for a while and then put it back in the computer. This can give you one shot at getting the data of the drive.
