(SHOULD STILL BE UNDER WARANTY BUT ACER WILL NOT FIX IT. PLEASE HELP ME
You'll have to check the warranty by using the serial #.. call Acer back and just ask to see if the warranty is still active.. don't ask for tech support.. they'll route you to india and you'll be stuck again.
As for the display going out... it's a little thing called the inverter. This is very common and not too difficult to fix.
I would however NOT replace it myself since it can put out one hell of a shock.

The inverter is located just under the plastic housing below the LCD panel. You can google: LCD INVERTER ASPIRE 5100.
best wishes.. this one isn't easy..
oh and your laptop is fine.. just the part of the LCD that has gone out unfortunately.
