Question about Acer Computers & Internet
If it's a spring loaded type latch mechanism, It may be as simple as a spring. Carefully remove the bezel and take a look.

!!! IMPORTANT PLEASE READ !!!
Sorry for the uppercase, but I get 3 phone calls a day, apparently stemming from someone (PNWSolutions) providing the wrong phone number to fellow readers.
The phone number 949-462-6000 is incorrect. You will not reach anyone that can help you there because is an entirely different Toshiba company, who does not deal with laptops at all.
The correct number is (800) 457-7777 for the Toshiba America Information Systems call center as you can see here:
Of course you can choose to call Pam Saunders directly at (949) 583-3000 [dial by name], but I doubt she will be able to handle the volume of requests.
Your best best is really the customer support call center which is staffed appropriately for such tasks.

Those screens tend to lose their tightness as time goes on from all the opening and closing. Regrettably, there isn't much to be done with them except replacement of the part. You can jury rig it but that's about it. I,too, had a zv5000 and experienced the same thing.
Please don't hold my bad news against me when you rate my answer! ;-)

Walk into a Computer hardware shop. Of course they will have all the required tool to open the laptop up and fix the new screen.

My battery latch got stuck in the open position after replacing the battery on HP's DV 6300 series. The battery was thus stuck. I used the 'screwdriver' technique but with a rounded end kitchen knife not an actual screwdriver to remove the battery. It is important to push the knife down a little into the groove at the outer long edge of the battery and pry that outer edge up. AFTER DOING THIS THEN GOING TO REPLACE THE BATTERY I REALIZED THE LATCH PROBLEM OCCURRED BECAUSE I HAD PUSHED THE BATTERY LATCH TO THE OPEN POSITION TO REPLACE THE BATTERY. THIS IS WHAT JAMS IT. TO REPLACE THE BATTERY 'DON'T TOUCH THE LATCH AT ALL'. LEAVE THE LATCH IN THE CLOSED POSITION AND REPLACING THE BATTERY WILL SET THE LATCH IN THE CORRECT CLOSED POSITION, READY TO BE SLID TO OPEN POSITION ONLY TO DO THE ACTUAL BATTERY REMOVAL.

Here is one place I found thru google that sells your lcd for your laptop:
Price is about $89.00 before any S/H charges. I'm sure if you do some research you may find them cheaper.
When it comes to replacing the lcd on these laptops most of the time its done the same way. Unscrew the screws on the front lcd bezel and then remove the bezel so it will expose the lcd with a hinge on each side.
Remove the screws on the left hinge and also remove the screws on the right hinge.
At this point the screen will be loose. Disconnect the power connector from the bottom of the lcd that goes to the little rectangular inverter board.
There will also be a cable on the back of the lcd screen that needs to come out as well. Be gentle with the cable cause its sensitive.
At this point you can remove the bad lcd and then get ready to put the new lcd into place.
Go ahead and connect the lcd cable to the back of the lcd, don't worry it is slotted so it can only go in one way and it will kind of snap into place. Then go ahead and align the screen with the left and right hinges so you can put the screws back on so it keeps the screen in place.
Then go ahead and connect the power connector to the rectangular inverter as well. Now that you have the screen hooked up. Turn on the laptop and if you get video then you know the screen is good, turn the laptop back off and then go ahead and put the lcd front bezel back on and put the screws back into place and you should be good to go. I know this was lengthy but hope this information helps.
