Most likely it's just coincidence that you had this kind of problem the day that your anti-virus software expired. The error messages that you're getting are typical of hard drive failure. The easiest way to find out for sure is to see if replacing your hard drive fixes the problem. You could also remove the hard drive and take it to a local shop and see if they will test it for you. There are programs that you can buy to test it yourself, but purchasing the software and hardware to do this testing yourself could easily cost you about as much or more than just buying a new hard drive. If you decide to just replace the hard drive, then make sure that you are ordering\buying the correct hard drive. The hard drive for your laptop will be 2.5". Most likely it is a SATA (Serial ATA) hard drive. The other type of interface is IDE. IDE has all the little pins sticking out of one end of the hard drive where it interfaces with the computer's motherboard. SATA has 2 plug\port attachments for interfacing with the motherboard. SATA is the one most widely used in computers manufactured in the last 3-4 years. It shouldn't matter what size of hard drive you get. The bigger the hard drive the more expensive it will be. The new hard drive will not have an operating system on it, so if your computer didn't come with recovery discs, then you may want to go to ACER's website and see if you can order the recover disc(s) for your laptop, or you could just go out and buy a new copy of Windows 7. Please leave feedback about the information that I've given you.

Testimonial: "Thanks for your fast response I ordered the disc from acer and they didn't work. I had a feeling it was the hard drive but the good news is it is still under warranty."
You have Vista
In CONTROL PANEL select RECOVERY
Then "Advanced Recovery Settings"
Then "Return your computer to factory settings".
Be AWARE you will loose all of your files and after market downloads.
May want to BACK-UP!
